Aspect on board for Hedda Gabler

Aspect Film has taken on worldwide sales rights to Matthew John's new period drama adaptation of Henrik Ibsen's classic play Hedda Gabler, currently in post. Rita Ramnani [pictured] takes the lead role, with the cast also including Jon-Paul Gates, Samantha Hunt, David Butler and Francisco Ortiz. Aspect Film's Managing Director, Hugh Edwards said, "Matthew John has tackled an Ibsen classic with aplomb. To do so as a debutant director and achieve what he has deserves credit.

The film was shot at Maunsel House in Somerset, owned by Sir Benjamin Slade, who also executive produces the film.
