After El Greco, the famous Greek director Giannis Smaragdis is preparing a movie about Nikos Kazantzakis, the most famous Cretan man in the world, as he stressed out. This project was announced last night by the director himself at the Municipal Cinema of Heraklion Town, after the screening of his movie El Greco.
He added that the script is now ready and even described some scenes of the film. The director also pointed that very important for Kazantzakis was his relationship with Crete, his father, the women of his life and his travels around the world, particularly to China. Shooting is expected to start next summer and the production may again be international.
