Claudia Cardinale to star in adaptation
producer Riccardo Tozzi, who enthuses, “Amelio has written a great screenplay.” While this logistical aspect makes talk of a shooting date premature, Tozzi said he is confident that this will be Amelio’s next project. Amelio’s previous features include Cannes Grand Jury prizewinner “The Stolen Children.” French producer Bruno Pesery is the main producer behind this as-yet untitled pic. Tunisian-born Cardinale will play Camus’ beautiful but deaf and distant mother.
