Armie Hammer-Geoffrey Rush Drama ‘Final Portrait’ Closes Financing

Riverstone Pictures has closed financing on Stanley Tucci’s drama “Final Portrait,” starring Armie Hammer and Geoffrey Rush.

The film, which begins production later this month, focuses on the end of Swiss painter and sculptor Alberto Giacometti’s life. Tucci is directing from his own script, based on James Lord’s book “A Giacometti Portrait” in which Lord — a young American writer — studied Giacometti as he painted Lord’s picture in 1964.

Giacometti died in 1966 in Switzerland. He’s best remembered for his stark and surrealistic sculptures.

Producers are Gail Egan for Potboiler alongside Nik Bower for Riverstone Pictures and Ilann Girard. Deepak Nayar is an executive producer and the film is produced in association with Olive Productions, Lowsun Productions and Arsam International.

Sales launched at the Cannes Film Festival in May. HanWay Films will handle international sales at the Berlin Film Festival with CAA handling the U.S.

Riverstone was founded by Nayar and Bower in 2014 and is backed by Reliance Entertainment and Ingenious Media. “Genius,” starring Colin Firth, Jude Law, Nicole Kidman and Laura Linney, is the first film Riverstone Pictures is financing. It will premiere in competition at the Berlin Film Festival.

Riverstone Pictures is also in post-production on Open Road Films’ “Sleepless Night,” starring Jamie Foxx and Michelle Monaghan.
