Pope Joan Movie News!      (updated October 2009)

October 2009

Donna is in Berlin, Germany, ready to attend the world premier of the Pope Joan movie which will take place Monday, October 19th!

The US premiere is still to be determined.

........................................................................

Pope Joan has finished filming! It's now in post-production (editing). The movie was filmed in Germany and Morocco--yes, Morocco! For it's impossible to film ninth-century Rome in the city that exists today, so Constantin recreated it in the sands of Ouarzazate. Johanna Wokalek is brilliant as Joan, as is David Wenham as Gerold, and John Goodman as Pope Sergius.

For more information on the movie, including "insider" gossip from Donna, who was on the set in both countries, sign up for email updates, issued about once each month.
