Italo-French actress Valeria Bruni Tedeschi (“Saint Laurent”), Spanish stars Candela Pena (“All About My Mother”), Lluis Homar (“Bad Education”), Marisa Paredes and Australian-born rock singer Nadeah Miranda have joined the cast of Italo helmer Cristina Comencini’s “Latin Lover,” which Italy’s Rai Trade is pre-selling internationally at Cannes.
Rai Trade is also selling Critics’ Week entry drag queen drama “Darker Than Midnight” by Italy’s Sebastiano Riso.
Comencini, whose “Don’t Tell” was nommed for a foreign-language Oscar in 2005, started shooting “Lover” last week in Italy’s Apulia region. Pic is an Almodovarian comedy that turns on a group of women who convene from different parts of the world for the commemoration of a famous dead actor, known for being an epitomal Italian stud, played by Sicilian thesp Francesco Scianna (“Baaria”).
