Master and Margaret to be Screened in Hollywood

It has been reported that Hollywood is going to produce a full-length screen version of Mikhail Bulgakovs most mystic novel Master and Margaret.
      This is going to be anything but the first attempt to screen the enigmatic novel, and nobody knows yet how far the film director Scott Steindorff and the Stone Village Pictures manage to progress in making the film.
      Earlier Roman Polanski together with Warner Bros. intended to do it, however the project never materialized.
      In Europe they were also interested in screening the famous novel. The first successful attempt was that made by the Polish film director Andrzej Wajda in 1971, and a year later already the viewers saw the Italian and Yugoslavian version by Aleksandar Petrovic.
      It is known that a number of prominent film-directors all over the world, including the Russian Igor Talankin, Eldar Ryazanov, Elem Klimov, and others had it in mind to screen the novel, but always this or that stumbling block would occur. In Russia only Yuri Kara contrived to complete the screening, yet his film shot in 1994 never went on general release for some obscure reasons.
      Finally, in 2005 the Russian TV telecast the premiere of the TV series Master and Margaret directed by Vladimir Bortko who had spent 5 million dollars and 9 months on its creation.
      Following this, last year the illustrious British composer Andrew Lloyd Webber stated that he was already working on staging a musical after the famous novel by Mikhail Bulgakov.
