By Laszlo Kriston in Toronto

    Debra Winger confirmed that she has been in talks with Hungarian director, Janos Szasz to act in his upcoming film.

    "We have been trying to get it made, but first we’d need Hungarian state film funding to get it off the ground," Winger told FNE at the Toronto Film Festival.

    The three-time Oscar-nominee actress is of Hungarian origin; her US-born father was the son of Hungarian emigrants.

    "It is a contemporary story." Wingerm said when asked about the project by the director known for mostly period pieces.

    In early August auteur Bela Tarr announced that in his series of feature films on the 15th Century Renaissance in Hungary, Szasz will direct one of the movies in his series of feature films on the 15th century Renaissance in Hungary.
