Marrakech International Film Festival

ran from 30 November to 8 December. Many international film stars graced the festival with their presence. Including Laurence Fishburne. He told to Hollywood Reporter that he has been wanting to develop his project “The Alchemist”  based on Paulo Coelho’s best-selling book for 16 years and now it is moving forward. He added that the spiritual message of the 1988 novel still resonates, and that the cultural exchange between religions has particular relevance now. “It speaks to everybody all over the world, and I think that’s the thing for me that makes me so passionate about bringing it to the screen,” he said.  About John Wick 3 that’s currently in the making, he said his character, Bowery King, will only be in the first half of the film, which was shot in New York over the summer before moving to Morocco. (source https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/marrakech-laurence-fishburne-diversity-bringing-alchemist-screen-1166057.)
