Fallen former Italian film industry topper and sports mogul Vittorio Cecchi Gori may be about to return to production, according to his actress companion Valeria Marini.
“There are directors ready to work with him — Carlo Vanzina for example, but he is not the only one,” Marini told Italian news agency Adnkronos.
Vanzina confirmed that he had spoken to Cecchi Gori about making a film, despite the producer’s financial collapse last year.
“Vittorio has cinema in his blood,” said Vanzina. “He is a real producer who speaks the language of the cinema. He is not beaten. In these last months that were terrible for him he was always thinking of making movies.”
