‘Sopranos’ Alum to Direct Feature-Length ‘Lily of the Feast’

Former “Sopranos” cast member Federico Castelluccio is about to get his very own director’s chair, as he will make his directorial debut on the feature-length version of “Lily of the Feast.”

“Lily of the Feast” tells the story of Santo Bastucci, a local banker with a rare gift for memorizing numbers. Unwittingly cast into the forefront of an aging wiseguy’s bid for power, Santo is caught between the loyalty he has for his cagey father-in-law, Benny; his childhood friend, Basta and his street-wise uncle, Matteo, the pastor of their Brooklyn church.

Castelluccio will be teaming up with Jackson Leonard Productions on the project. Michael Ricigliano, Jr. and Jeff Schneider, who are partners at the production company, will serve as co-executive producers. Ricigliano penned the script. Principal roles in the feature are being cast this month.

Filming is slated to begin in August in New York.
