Here's the big question: Who's gonna play Rachmaninoff? Where's Lugosi when you need him?

This is directed by the same guy who helmed Bride of the Wind, the admirable Alma Mahler biopic.

And it's not the only Rachmaninoff movie in production, either: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0804500/

No word on casting for either that I could find. There's also unsubstantiated rumors of two other Vivaldi movies floating around in development hell. Geoffrey Rush was mentioned with one of them, but I couldn't find any confirmation of that.
