‘City Island’ starts shooting

De Felitta directs Mortimer, Arkin, Garcia

Indie pic “City Island” has started lensing in its namesake Bronx locale. Emily Mortimer, Alan Arkin, Andy Garcia and Julianna Margulies star.

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 film finance group packaged the pic and will handle domestic sales, while WestEnd Films will handle foreign.
