Having kicked off production in August, Ralph Fiennes has now completed shooting on his latest directorial/acting effort, The White Crow. To mark the occasion, there is a new image of star Oleg Ivenko, who plays legendary ballet star Rudolf Nureyev, and you can find it above.

David Hare wrote the script for the film, which finds actor and dancer Ivenko starring as Nureyev in a story that adapts Julie Kavanagh's book Rudolf Nureyev: The Life. Rather than tackle his entire existence, though, The White Crow focuses on the iconic dancer's defection from the Soviet Union in 1961 and the KGB's attempts to stop him.

Fiennes is also playing Nureyev's mentor Pushkin, and has Oleg Ivenko, Sergei Polunin, Adèle Exarchopoulos, Chulpan Khamatova, Raphaël Personnaz, Calypso Valois, Oliver Rabourdin and Louis Hofmann in the ensemble, and the next step for the film will be selling additional rights at the American Film Market next month. The drama has yet to set a release date.
