Catherine Zeta-Jones heading home for new film

Monday May 14, 2001

Catherine Zeta-Jones will return to her roots for her latest project. The Swansea-born actress plans to make a film entitled Coming Out, which will be set in a Welsh rugby club.

The BBC reports that the film will be produced by Zeta-Jones' own production company, Milkwood Films, which she runs with her brother Lyndon Jones. He also had the original idea for the comedy.

Zeta-Jones is very proud of her Welsh heritage: her son with husband Michael Douglas is named Dylan, after the poet Dylan Thomas, whose play Under Milk Wood also provided the name for the Jones siblings' company.

Speaking of her native country, the actress said: "I think Wales has immense talent, both in front and behind the camera, and I am excited about the prospects of this film." Her brother added: "Catherine feels passionately about maintaining her ties with Wales and about doing what she can to promote film-making in Wales."

The project was developed with the help of the Welsh Development Agency and SgrÎn, the Welsh media agency.
