Guadagnino, whose previous credits include Swinton starrer “The Protagonists” and Sony’s “Melissa P.,” will start shooting the Italo-language pic in Milan this summer.
“L’amore” is about “the irreparable consequences brought about by love in a high-bourgeois family,” Guadagnino said.
Attached alongside Swinton is Italian actress Alba Rohrwacher. Other cast is still being decided.
Pic is being co-produced by Guadagnino’s First Sun shingle and Mikado, with some financing from the Italian government.
