Loren starrer starts

World Brief

Principal photography has begun in Toronto for the Italian-Canadian co-production “Lives of the Saints,” starring Sophia Loren and based on the trilogy by Italian-Canadian author Nino Ricci.

Pic is about an Italian boy (Fabrizio Filippo, “Waydowntown,”) in war-torn 1940s Italy who migrates to Toronto and returns to Italy 30 years later.

The two-part, four-hour miniseries also stars Kris Kristofferson. Jerry Ciccoritti (“The Many Trials of Jane Doe,” “Trudeau,”) is directing.

The miniseries will air in Canada on CTV and in Italy on Channel 5.
