Yulia Volkova and Lena Katina spent the past weekend on the set shooting Finding Tatu, where the singers play themselves.

During their first day of shooting, the singers did one of the final scenes for the movie. It was done at location of the abandoned Badayevsky brewery. The picture is based on the novel by deputy of the Russian Parliament Alexey Mitrofanov in collaboration with writer Anastasiya Moiseeva - Tatu Come Back.

The leading roles are played by the Hollywood actresses Shantel Van Santen and Mischa Barton. The movie tells the story of two teens ? a 17 year old American girl and her Russian friend from a small provincial town. The girls meet in Moscow for one of the Tatu gigs and find themselves involved in a whirlpool of incredible events.

The movie is directed by British director Roland Joffe ? an award winner of the Cannes Film Festival and the Academy Award nominee and winner for his pictures The Killing Fields (1984) and The Mission (1986). The shooting of Finding Tatu is planned to end by August 14, 2007. Editing and final cut is estimated to take up to six months. Its premiere is scheduled to take place at the 61st Annual Cannes Film Festival which will be held May 14 to 25, 2008 in Cannes (France).
