Le conseguenze dell'amore (2004)
Sorrentino -- a two-time Palme d'Or nominee at Cannes -- announced the plans for the highly anticipated film last month, claiming that the 88-year-old Andreotti gave the project his blessing. But Andreotti responded a day later saying he had never met Sorrentino and that he hoped the film would never be made.
But producers indicated Monday that it will indeed be made, with a 4.2 million ($5.7 million) budget split between four production houses: Italian producers Indigo Film, Lucky Red and Parco Film along with French company Babe Films. Filming is set to begin in June.
Toni Servillo, who won a David di Donatello Award for best actor for Sorrentino's 2004 film Conseguenze dell'Amore (Consequences of Love), will play Andreotti in the film.
When contacted, Sorrentino would not say if Andreotti had finally decided to give his blessing to the project.
