As I type this, I can look out my window and watch the snow continue to fall. It's not the blizzard it was this morning, but it's definitely a winter wonderland out there, and it has been for a while. Apparently, however, the same can't be said for Russia. While Toronto is having a rare and surprising season full of the white stuff, Mother Nature in Russia has been slacking off, which has put a huge wrench into the production of Morfii.

The film, to be helmed by Aleksei Balabanov, is an adaptation of Mikhail Bulgakov's novel (penned by the late Sergei Bodrov Jr.), which detailed the "civil war that raged after the 1917 Bolshevik revolution." They need lots of snow for the feature, but the winter has been mild and made a mess out of the project. Well, really, it's just a cherry to the production's problems. (Coincidentally, Bodrov Jr. died in an avalanche while working on a film in 2002.)
