‘City Island’ trio reteam on ‘Married’ comedy

De Felitta, Lucky Monkey reunite on romantic pic

Raymond De Felitta (“City Island”) will reteam with Lucky Monkey Pictures’ Lauren Versel and Maria Teresa Arida for his new romantic comedy, “Married and Cheating.”

The trio worked together on De Felitta’s “City Island,” starring Andy Garcia and Julianna Margulies. “City Island” received the Heineken Audience Award at Tribeca last year and will be released by Anchor Bay on March 19.

Versel, Arida and Lucky Monkey Pictures will co-produce “Married and Cheating” with De Felitta’s Medici Entertainment. The film will shoot this summer in New York and Paris.

Story follows three different couples, all being unfaithful within their marriages, whose paths cross over a long weekend in New York and Paris. Pic will be financed, as “City Island” was, with a combination of equity, foreign pre-sales and tax incentives.

Lucky Monkey’s “The Last Summer of La Boyita,” written and directed by Julia Solomanoff, will preem next month at the Miami Film Festival. Producing with Red Hour Films and Molly Hassell, the banner begins lensing in April on “Vamps,” written and to be directed by Amy Heckerling. Alicia Silverstone and Krysten Ritter will star.
