    Freida Pinto, who shot to fame last year after starring in Slumdog Millionaire, has booked a role in Miral, a new film by Julian Schnabel. The project is an adaptation of book about Hind Husseini, who founded a Jerusalem orphanage during the post-1948 creation of the state of Israel and the partitioning of Palestine.

    Schnabel wrote the screenplay and is working on an English language translation of the book to coincide with the film's planned release. Shooting is scheduled to begin in April and will take place in both Israeli and Palestinian territories.
