Burke joins ‘Mafia’ pic

Actor Billy Burke has landed a co-starring role in Touchstone’s upcoming parody pic, “Jane Austen’s Mafia.”

Jim Abraham helms and produces the pic, which he wrote with Greg Norberg and Michael McManus.

In the spoof of “The Godfather,” Burke will play Joey Cortino, the eldest son of the Mafia family Don, played by Lloyd Bridges (Daily Variety, August 4).

“Mafia” is set to begin lensing in September. Touchstone prexy Donald Deline and director of development Mark Vahradian will oversee the pic.

Burke next will appear alongside Billy Crudup and Monica Potter in “Without Limits” (formerly “Pre”) for Warner Bros.

Burke’s deal was brokered by Todd Eisner and Suzanne Bennett of Writers & Artists Agency along with his manager, Ellen Meyer of Kassirer Meyer Entertainment.
