Fugitive film director Roman Polanski’s next project will have an unlikely star, former Formula One driver Sir Jackie Stewart.

Sir Jackie, 71, has been a close friend of Polanski for nearly four decades and featured in his 1972 film, Weekend Of A Champion.

In the movie, Polanski filmed Stewart’s victory in the 1971 Monaco Grand Prix, the year he won the first of his three world championships.

Sir Jackie will feature in Polanski’s remake of the film to be shot later this month at the Monaco Grand Prix.

At this week’s Great Scot Awards in Boisedale restaurant in Canary Wharf, Sir Jackie, accompanied by his wife Helen, admits he is excited at the prospect of working with Polanski again.
‘He is a very old friend,’ Sir Jackie tells me. ‘I knew his first wife, Sharon Tate, really well and liked her. My son Mark is involved in film-making and I am flying out for the remake, which will focus on this year’s Grand Prix at Monaco.’

Apparently, Summitridge is up for sale.  If everyone remembers correctly, Patty Duke had the house in the mid 60s and Sharon and Roman lived in it for awhile before they moved into Cielo Drive( Thanks to Melissa and Laurax for this information) :

    Sharon Tate was a beautiful woman both inside and out.
    She was a warm, caring person who loved life.
    Her best years were ahead of her, but she never got to see that time.
    However, Sharon is alive in our hearts.
    God bless her.
