Lionsgate, an American entertainment company has picked up UK rights to Liam Neeson-starrer Made In Italy. It is now underway in the UK and Italy. Lindsay Duncan (Le Week-End), Valeria Bilello (Sense8) and Neeson’s son Micheál Richardson (Vox Lux) also star in the feature.
The comedy follows bohemian London artist Robert (Neeson). He returns to Italy with his estranged son Jack (Richardson) to make a quick sale of the house they inherited from his late wife. None of them expect to find the once beautiful villa in such a state of disrepair
The film was developed by London based CrossDay productions and is produced by Pippa Cross and Sam Tipper-Hale. It also has HanWay’s MD Gabrielle Stewart and CrossDay’s Janette Day as executive producers. Co-producers for Indiana Production in Italy are Daniel Campos Pavoncelli and Alessandro Mascheroni.
However, Zygi Kamasa commented, “James has written a beautiful and relatable story about a father and son. They mend their relationship in the most unexpected of ways. Poignant, funny and heart warming, this project reflects Lionsgate’s continued desire to make the best of British films, with the best of British talent. This is a perfect film to add to our slate for next year.”
