Freida Pinto, the Indian actress who starred in the Oscar-winning movie, "Slumdog Millionaire," arrived in Israel last week ahead of shooting for a new film by critically acclaimed writer-director Julian Schnabel. Schnabel, whose recent film, "The Diving Bell and the Butterfly" won awards and praise, will begin shooting his next project, "Miral," a joint French-Israeli production in April. The movie is set in Jerusalem, and it chronicles Hind Husseini's effort to establish an orphanage in the city following the creation of the state in 1948. It is scheduled to be released in 2010. Although the filming does not start for another month, Pinto arrived early in order to get into character, the production team said.
