A start date & new father/son team for Made in Italy
- Category: Latest updates
Production for James D'Arcy feature screenplay and directorial debut, Made in Italy is now set to begin filming in April 2019 in Italy, but with new leads!
Bill Nighy and Jack Lowden were initially attached, but some sources said they had to pull out because of scheduling conflicts.
Liam Neeson and his son, Micheál Richardson will now star in James' comedy.
Neeson will play the bohemian London artist, Robert, while Richardson will play the estranged son, Jack.
Micheál Richardson is the eldest son of Neeson and his late wife, Natasha Richardson. The 23 year old is a rising actor and has recently taken on the surname of his mother to honour her.
Although Liam Neeson is best known for his action & drama films, he is also wonderful with comedy as in "Love Actually" and "A Million Ways to Die in the West." Last year, he had hinted to Radio Times that it was time to put an end to his action films:
The thrillers, that was all a pure accident. They are still throwing serious money at me to do that stuff. I'm like, Guys, I'm sixty-fucking-five. Audiences are eventually going to go, "Come on."
Made in Italy is a heart-warming comedy about a bohemian London artist with his long been estranged son who travel to glorious Tuscany to quickly sell the house inherited from his late wife. Neither expects to find the once beautiful villa in such a state of disrepair and because of Robert’s comical lack of DIY skills, the renovations go badly leading him to seek help from colourful locals. For Jack, the state of the house mirrors his search for happier memories of his mother. Jack falls for a young, vivacious Italian chef at a local trattoria, Natalia, who has a jealous and threatening ex-husband. While restoring the villa, Robert & Jack also start to mend their relationship and their future may now look quite different that may surprise them both.
A statement from Hanway Films managing director Gabrielle Stewart:
It has been exciting to see this popular screenplay and project really mature and take shape this year; and with Liam and Micheal playing a father and son facing challenges both emotional and comedic in Tuscany, we are in for a very special treat.
And a celebratory tweet from Markham Froggatt Irwin:
Kick starting the week with the brilliant #JamesDArcy 's directorial debut #MadeInItaly
The production team includes Crossday's (London) Pippa Cross, Sam Tipper-Hale with Palomar Production's (Italy) Nicola Serra. Gabriel Stewart and Janette Day are exec producers.
Cinematography will be by award-winning Mike Eley (Parade's End) and Chris Dickens (Slumdog Millionaire) for Editing.
Hanway Films is selling the film at the American Film Market starting Wednesday at Santa Monica, California.
