New film about anti-Communist heroine

David Mrnka, U.S. film producer of Czech origin, is going to make a film about one of the symbols of resistance against Communism, Milada Horakova. She was arrested and, after a show trial, sentenced to death. She was, as the only woman, executed in 1950, even though many world personalities, such as Churchill or Einstein, petitioned for her life.

The film will focus on her personal life as well as the key events of her sad story. The screenplay is now being written by Lorie Hope, actors and the director are still discussed. Mrnka would like to cast either Annette Benning, Meryl Streep, Emma Thompson, or Cate Blanchett.

The film will be shot in two years, probably in Prague, east Bohemia and Los Angeles studios. Thanks to Jana Kanska, the daughter of Milada Horakova, and her husband, the film-makers have access to personal belongings of the family.
