Sorvino joins Brando in Filmline’s ‘Money’

MONTREAL — Mira Sorvino has reached an agreement with Montreal-based Filmline Intl. to co-star in “Free Money,” the Marlon Brando starrer that begins lensing Monday in Montreal.

Sorvino will play an FBI agent investigating a murder at the prison where Brando’s character works as a tough-as-nails warden.

The agent played by Sorvino is the daughter of a judge, to be portrayed by veteran Canuck thesp Donald Sutherland. The cast also includes Charlie Sheen, Thomas Haden Church and Japanese singer Seiko Matsuda.

“Free Money” is to be directed by Canadian helmer Yves Simoneau, who is returning to his home province of Quebec after several years shooting TV pics in Los Angeles.

Filmline president Nicolas Clermont is producing, with MDP Worldwide handing all international sales. The script by Joseph Brutsman and Tony Peck is a black comedy set in Florence, Minn., and much of the action centers around the warden’s difficult relationship with his two teenage identical-twin daughters.

Lensing on “Free Money” will continue through Oct. 10 at various locations in and around Montreal, including extensive shooting on National Film Board of Canada soundstages and some exteriors in the Eastern Townships southeast of Montreal.

Sorvino’s latest pic, the sci-fi horror film “Mimic,” opens today in theaters across North America via Miramax’s Dimension Films.
