.
.
.What are some future projects Emma Thompson will be involved in?
.

2. Untitled
Emma has completed a new screenplay based on the life of troubadour-poet Victor Jara.  Jara "died at the hands of the Chilean junta headed by Gen. Augusto Pinochet. During the U.S- backed military coup that overthrew the socialist government of President Salvador Allende, the folk-singer  was jailed, and during two days of torture all the bones in his hands were brutally shattered. Jara was herded into the Stadium of Chile in Santiago in September, 1973, with thousands of other artists, intellectuals, and political dissidents arrested during the military takeover--and publicly executed." ....."I've been wanting to write this movie for some time," she says of the screenplay that is currently engaging most of her professional attention, and for which she has put several commercial projects on hold. While Thompson was too young to become politically involved at the time of the Chilean coup, she did so later. "I began campaigning for the Chilean opposition in support of the movement for restoration of democracy, and the ouster of Pinochet," she says. "Since then I have felt very involved  with Chile and its people." [Copyright 1998 CHOICES Women's Medical Center, Inc.]
