Vladimir Bortko to Screen Taras Bulba

The well-known Russian film director Vladimir Bortko has set about making a film after Nikolay Gogols famous story Taras Bulba. The shooting of the first fragments is already underway on the island of Hortiza.
      The script has been written by the playwright Eduard Volodarsky; the film composer is Rodion Shchedrin. The film involves popular actors of Russia and Ukraine, such as Bogdan Stupka, Mikhail Boyarsky, Gosha Kutsenko, Ada Rogovtseva, and others.
      The movie with the budget of 25 million dollars is to become the most expensive TV project in Russia.
      According to cinema critics, Taras Bulba is a logical sequel of the screen versions made by Vladimir Bortko. His films
      Sobachye serdtse (Heart of a Dog) (1988) and Master i Margarita (Master and Margaret) (2005) after Bulgakov, as well as the screening of Dostoevskys novel Idiot (2003) enjoy popularity among Russian audience.
