Placido's Vallanzasca Heading to Venice Film Festival

13 July 2010 1:35 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

As I rightly predicted yesterday, Michele Placido's biopic on infamous Italian criminal Renato Vallanzasca will indeed be heading to the Lido. Announced at a press conference by 20th Century Fox Italy, Vallanzasca would receive an out of competition slot at the Venice Film Fest, which means Fortissimo Films could very well transfer the title for a Tiff premiere and further market sales. Formerly titled "Il Fiore del Male" and inspired by the book of the same name, scripted by Gerardo Amato, Michele Placido, Andrea Purgatori and Kim Rossi Stuart (this reunites Placido and Stuart) , the pic is now going by the name of the principle person that is involved. This is based on the life of Renato Vallanzasca (played by Rossi Stuart), known as handsome Renè a notorious criminal who terrorized Milan in the 1970s. He has spent 38 of his 58 years in jail. Here's an set pic below you »
