IGELESE Ete hopes to bring top Hollywood A-list actors to Fiji for a movie premier next year.

The head of performing arts at USP is working on an animation film about dolphins called Score which features elite Hollywood actors like Gerard Butler, Whoopi Goldberg, Kate Winslett, James Franco, Megan Fox, Owen Wilson and nine-year-old Oscar nominee Quvenzhane Wallis.

"There is a high possibility of a world premiere of the movie next year which I'm currently working on," Mr Ete said.

"I would love to bring in Hollywood A-list actors. Why not, let's bring all the international top creative and performing artists to Fiji in that way they'll get to experience the amazing local talent and creative arts, as we develop our creative standards from good to great, excellent and that mentoring will go a long way."

Score is directed by Hollywood director Jonathon Kay. Mr Ete is providing original music for 10-14 scenes in the movie.

The film, described as an amazing, awe-inspiring, all-ages, and true-life documentary unfolding a story of legendary proportions by Mr Ete, is about the spectacular journey under the sea capturing the incredible beauty of dolphins.

The movie is expected to be released in February 2014.
