Dante: The Motion Picture will be a cinematic effort by production company Yellow House to accurately represent The Divine Comedy‘s story and settings.
“One small production company taking on the challenge of creating a piece of cinema magic, based on the epic poem, The Divine Comedy.
“You’ve seen the cartoons and video game adaption tie-ins, but none of the films based on Dante Alighieri’s The Divine Comedy quite cut it for an accurate portrayal of the events, locations and characters that readers have grown to love over the centuries. Fans of the material have been begging for Hollywood’s take on the classic Italian poem since the dawn of cinema, however, time and time again they have been left empty handed. [. . .]
“This is a live-action, all out ‘in your face’, portrayal of Dante’s journey. A journey fueled by his love for Beatrice while being led through the depths of hell by the seemingly all-knowing Virgil.” —Dante: The Motion Picture’s Kickstarter
