Oscar-winner Paolo Sorrentino to pair up with Michael Caine

5 March 2014 3:10 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Italian director who carried off best foreign film statuette for The Great Beauty lines up veteran British actor for In the Future

• The Great Beauty wins Oscar for best foreign language film

Oscar-winning director Paolo Sorrentino is to start work on his follow-up to The Great Beauty, a film called In the Future which is due to star Michael Caine.

According to Variety, In the Future is a "small, intimate film" about "friendship between two old people", quoting an interview the Italian film-maker gave to La Republica.

Sorrentino, who won the best foreign language film Oscar for The Great Beauty, has worked with English-speaking actors before, having cast Sean Penn in his goth-rocker road movie This Must Be the Place, which was selected for the Cannes film festival.

There is no word yet as to whether In the Future contains a role for Sorrentino's regular collaborator Toni Servillo, who played »

Sorrentino Set To Start Shooting Michael Caine-Starrer ‘In The Future’ In May

4 March 2014 4:33 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Rome – Hot on the heels of his foreign Oscar victory for “The Great Beauty” Paolo Sorrentino is set to start shooting in May on Michael Caine-starrer “In The Future,” an intimate drama about “friendship between two old people,” the Italo helmer has announced.

Sorrentino said that after his ambitious Oscar-winning tour de force he wants to make “a fresh start” with a “small, intimate film,” he told Italian daily La Repubblica. The helmer’s customary irony is likely to permeate his new pic, which Sorrentino penned himself.

As previously announced, “In The Future” is being shepherded by Sorrentino’s regular producers, Nicola Giuliano and Francesca Cima via their Indigo Films shingle, with co-financing from Italian distributor Mediaset/Medusa which is planning a late 2014 release in Italy.

In The Future” will mark Sorrentino’s second pic toplining an A-list anglo-saxon star, following his collaboration with Sean Penn on “This Must Be The Place »

Paolo Sorrentino Talks Oscar-Winner 'The Great Beauty' and What's Next (Trailer)

3 March 2014 10:06 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

I first discovered the cinema of Italian auteur Paolo Sorrentino in 2008 when I saw "Il Divo" at Cannes, which stars the incandescent Toni Servillo as former Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti. Even though the biopic did a deep dive into decades of arcane Machiavellian politics in Italy, the movie was utterly accessible because Servillo carried you through. My second encounter with Sorrentino was also at Cannes, with his first English-language film "This Must be the Place," which features a riveting performance from Sean Penn as an aging expat rocker who returns to his roots in America after his father dies. But the movie didn't quite come together--Sorrentino's English has definitely improved since then.When I spoke to the filmmaker about his latest triumph, eventual foreign Oscar-winner "The Great Beauty" (Toh! review here), he did have a translator on hand, but he handled some of answers himself. The movie stars Servillo as »

The Great Beauty: the sacred and the profane

23 February 2014 11:27 PM, PST | | See recent news »

Italian director Paolo Sorrentino’s “La Grande Bellezza” (The Great Beauty) (2013)

Paolo Sorrentino’s The Great Beauty has two small yet important facets in common with Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life. Both films begin with a profound quote that provides a key to the viewer for a full understanding of the film that follows. Both films use the music of “Dies Irae” (Requiem for my Friend, which includes Lacrimosa 2) by Zbigniew Preisner (the talented composer of Kieslowski’s Dekalog and The Three Colors trilogy) and Henryk Gorecki’s 3rd Symphony.

Just as Mallick used an interesting quote from the Book of Job, the opening quote for The Great Beauty is from Sorrentino’s favorite author Louis-Ferdinand Céline’s Journey to the End of the Night.

The quote is “To travel is very useful, it makes the imagination work, the rest is just delusion and pain. Our journey is entirely imaginary, »

Paolo Sorrentino On His 'Great Beauty' Oscar Ride and the Future of Italian Film

22 February 2014 7:43 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In most recent years few Italian filmmakers have managed to establish themselves beyond the boot-shaped land, but Neapolitan Paolo Sorrentino has gradually managed to bring back Italy’s filmmaking grandeur to worldwide audiences. The Italian director established himself internationally with the movie "Il Divo," that wackily depicted the life of former Italian Prime Minister Giulio Andreotti. The film piqued Sean Penn’s interest, to the point that the actor decided to star in Sorrentino’s drama, "This Must Be The Place," as a middle-aged wealthy rock star, bored in his retirement, who took on the quest of finding his father's Nazi War criminal tormentor. Sorrentino’s latest film, "The Great Beauty," echoes some of the best Italian classics of the fifties, that denounced the social malaise of their time. "La Grande Bellezza" (the Italian title), recalls Fellini’s savory depictions of Rome in all its sumptuousness, flightiness and gimmick. The circus portrayed by the parties, »
