Orson Welles' last film may finally be released

The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) Orson Welles's last film may finally be nearing release after decades as one of cinema's most storied unfinished creations.

The New York Times (http://nyti.ms/1vhvcYa ) reported Wednesday that a Los Angeles-based production company, Royal Road Entertainment, has agreed to buy the rights to Welles' largely unseen "The Other Side of the Wind." Producers are planning to unveil the film in time for the centennial anniversary of Welles' birth on May 6.

The semi-autobiographical film is about a movie director, played by John Huston, feuding with Hollywood over an ambitious film. Welles shot the movie in 1971 and spent the rest of his life editing it, before dying in 1985.

Director Peter Bogdanovich, who appears in the film, will help edit the footage, which includes a roughly 45-minute edited print.
