Berlin: Tony Shalhoub, Clemence Poesy Join Stanley Tucci’s ‘Final Portrait’

Tony Shalhoub, Clemence Poesy and Sylvie Testud have joined Armie Hammer and Geoffrey Rush on Stanley Tucci’s “Final Portrait.”

Production begins Monday in the U.K. on the film, which focuses on the end of Swiss painter-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.

Rush stars as Giacometti, who died in 1966 in Switzerland and is best remembered for his stark and surrealistic sculptures, while Hammer stars as Lord. Shalhoub plays Giacometti’s brother while Testud will play his long-suffering wife and Poesy, who appeared in the later “Harry Potter” movies, portrays his muse and lover.

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.

HanWay Films is handling international sales at the Berlin Film Festival with CAA handling the U.S.

Riverstone Productions announced on Feb. 1 that it had closed the financing for “Final Portrait.”

Shalhoub won three Emmys for “Monk.” Tucci’s previous credits as a writer-director include “Blind Date” and “Big Night,” which starred Shalhoub.
