Film stars Mortimer, Arkin, Garcia, Margulies
Indie pic “City Island” has just started lensing in its namesake Bronx locale, with Emily Mortimer, Alan Arkin, Andy Garcia and Julianna Margulies filling out the cast.
Written and directed by Raymond De Felitta (“The Thing About My Folks”), the comedy tracks a Bronx prison guard (Garcia) who recognizes one of the inmates as his own illegitimate son.
Steven Strait (“10,000 BC” and “Stop-Loss”) plays the inmate son.
Paradigm’s motion picture finance group packaged the pic and will handle domestic sales, while Westend Films will handle foreign.
