John Abraham to act with Rachel Weisz
A surprise announcement was made by Deepa Mehta at the Cannes Film Festival a few days back.
John Abraham was in Cannes to promote his forthcoming film Goal along with girlfriend Bipasha Basu and UTV�s Ronnie Screwvala. While Bips came back to Mumbai after just half a day�s stay in Cannes, John stayed there for long.
During his stay at Cannes, he met filmmaker Deepa Mehta who, to everyone�s surprise, announced her next movie �Luna�.
A Hollywood venture, �Luna� is based on the American environmentalist Julia Hill, who lived in a small shelter atop a 180-foot-tall tree in California Redwood Forest for 738 days to protest against the felling of trees in the region. Hill named the tree on which she lived �Luna�, which is the title of Deepa Mehta�s movie.
The film will have Hollywood actress Rachel Weisz in the role of Julia Hill. John will play an activist. Interestingly, the film will not reveal anything about John�s nationality.
At Cannes, John also got to meet Julia Hill, who had come with Mehta. John says he was expecting a mature and serious woman. But in Julia he saw a young, feisty and passionate girl.
Although John hasn�t met Rachel Weisz yet, he is an admirer of her acting skills.
Besides �Luna�, John will also work with Deepa Mehta in her ambitious movie Exclusion which will have Amitabh Bachchan playing a Sikh.
