Phantom cast complete?

09.10.2003

With less than a week to go before filming starts on Joel Schumacher's attempt at doing justice to the fabled classic, PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, comes word that a supporting cast has finally been confirmed for the $40 million project. In addition to the previously announced casting that included Gerard Butler as The Phantom, Emmy Rossum as Christine, Patrick Wilson as Raoul and Alan Cumming as Monsieur André; Miranda Richardson, Minnie Driver, Ciaran Hinds, Simon Callow, James Fleet, Victor McGuire and Jennifer Ellison have also come aboard. Although I feel I would be hard pressed to find even one person who reads this site that doesn't know the story of The Phantom (even if it is from the 1989 version with Robert England, in which The Phantom was gifted with supernatural powers), here is a brief outline, just to jog your memory; A disfigured violin virtuoso lurks in the catacombs beneath the Paris Opera House, waiting to exact his revenge upon the people responsible for his plight. But when he falls for a young soprano, he vows to do anything in his power to make her a star, and to quietly win her love. When his plan to make the young woman fall in love with him is foiled by another man, he unleashes a torrent of terror upon all that enter the Opera's hallowed halls.
