Fernando Meirelles

Fernando Meirelles is Brazil's hottest director today. His last film The Constant Gardener was nominated for several Oscars and won best Actress for Rachel Weiss. It was an amazing film. His previous film City of God was shot in Brazil and caused a sensation winning several awards. Fernando always wanted to direct a film version of Blindness and without finishing Don Mckeller's film script he said Yes! The film has started shooting in Toronto and expects to be released in March of 2008. The lead actors are Jullianne Moore, Mark Ruffalo, Danny Glover, Alice Braga and Gael Garcia Bernal! The Canadian actors are Maury Chaiken, Sandra Oh, Don McKeller, Susan Coyne and Martha Burns...
