The UK’s most prolific producer, currently developing Aishwarya Rai project Spy Princess, has teamed up with Dutch director Jacco Groen’s Spring Films and Netherlands-based producer Jos van der Pal’s AV-motion pictures to make €1.5 million Lilet Never Happened. Shooting is planned to start January 2011. Lilet Never Happened looks at the underbelly of child prostitution in the Philippines. The story is based on the true story of one Filipina child prostitute in Manila. Sandy Talag, a teenage star in the Philippines, will play the lead. Groen has already shot footage as a finance tool. The filmmakers are raising some of the budget from national and international child welfare agencies as well as commercial sources.
