Fred Schepisi, James Ivory to Voyage to ‘Andorra’

Veteran Australian filmmaker Fred Schepisi (“Roxanne,” “The Russia House”) is to direct “Andorra,” a thriller and dark comedy based on U.S. novelist Peter Cameron’s novel of the same title.

Andorra” is expected to be Schepisi’s next film as director. He was previously attached to direct romantic drama “The Olive Sisters” at Arclight Films, but has moved to executive producer on the project which will instead now be directed by Frank Lotito.

James Ivory and Natalie Miller are set as executive producers on “Andorra,” while Jamie Bialkower of Jump Street Films adapted the screenplay with Cameron. Bialkower is also producer, along with Lizzette Atkins of Unicorn Films.

The story follows an American who settles in the tiny Andorra, meets an Australian couple and unsettles the other natives when he becomes linked to a dead body floating in the harbour.

The film is to be produced on a budget of some A$15 million (US$11 million) raised through a mix of pre-sales and European subsidy. Location shooting is expected to be in Europe in the first half of 2016. Jump Street and Sharmill Films are set as the Australian distributors.

Cameron’s 2002 novel “The City of Your Final Destination” was adapted into a film directed in 2009 by Ivory for Merchant Ivory Productions and Hyde Park Entertainment.
