Great news!  The movie”Waiting for the Miracle to Come” starring Willile Nelson, Charlotte Rampling and Aussie Lowe will be screened at the 2018 Austin Film Fest on October 27th.

The movie was written and directed by Australian filmmaker Lian Lunson, who told Rolling Stone, ““I wrote this script for Willie Nelson; his presence and stillness as an actor is unlike anyone else,” says Lunson. “And growing up I always wanted to be Charlotte Rampling, so bringing these two icons together on screen is a dream come true for me.”

“Waiting for the Miracle to Come” was filmed last year at Willie Nelson’s “Luck, Texas”,  an old west film set located on Willie Nelson’s ranch outside of Austin.  The movie set was originally created in 1986 for the filming of Willie Nelson’s movie, The Red Headed Stranger.  Luck has been the site of other movie videos and movies and private concerts and fundraisers.

Written and directed by Australian filmmaker Lian Lunson, Waiting for the Miracle to Come is about a young girl, played by fellow Aussie Sophie Lowe (Beautiful Kate, Adore), who finds a letter from her late father directing her to a goldmine in a remote area of the California desert. That’s where she meets two retired vaudeville stars, played by Nelson and acclaimed British actress Charlotte Rampling (Stardust Memories, The Duchess). In their talks, the couple enlightens the girl, an aspiring trapeze artist, to findings more valuable than gold.

“I wrote this script for Willie Nelson; his presence and stillness as an actor is unlike anyone else,” says Lunson. “And growing up I always wanted to be Charlotte Rampling, so bringing these two icons together on screen is a dream come true for me.”

Joining Lunson on the film’s six executive producer credits is legendary U2 lead singer, Bono, who will also write a song for Nelson to sing on the movie’s soundtrack. Lunson has a history with both musicians: She wrote and directed the 1997 documentary, Willie Nelson: Down Home, and she featured Bono in her 2005 documentary, Leonard Cohen: I’m Your Man. (In fact, Waiting for the Miracle to Come is titled after Cohen’s haunting ballad, “Waiting for the Miracle.”) Nelson and Bono’s pairing is a reunion decades in the making. The rock star wrote “Slow Dancing” for the country crooner back in 1989. They also recorded the song together for U2’s 2011 Duals album.
