Dabney Coleman has joined the cast of Bigel/Mailer’s “Casanova Falling,” which wraps shooting in New York next week.
He joins Mark Feuerstein, Ben Weber, Timothi Jane Graham and Ali Lauder in the romantic comedy from first-time writer-director Christopher Kublan.
The film’s female lead is played by Amy Redford (Robert’s daughter, in her feature debut.) It also features a cameo by writer-director James Toback.
“Casanova” is produced and financed by Daniel Bigel and Michael Mailer, who most recently exec produced Fox Searchlight’s “Two Girls and a Guy.”
The picture concerns a jaded New York ad exec and pathological womanizer (Feuerstein) whose life changes when he’s forced to collaborate with a beautiful, intelligent and independent co-worker (Redford).
Coleman plays the president of the agency — which is being shot in Chiat-Day’s stylish New York offices. Toback, whose writing credits include “Bugsy” and “The Gambler,” has a small role as a wacky sex therapist.
Feuerstein, now on hiatus from NBC’s “Fired Up,” has been rushing each day from the set of “Casanova” to his Broadway stint in the Tony-winning play “The Last Night of Ballyhoo.”
Lauder, who plays the protagonist’s fantasy female ideal, came to fame last year on the cover of Esquire magazine as the photographic personification of fictitious starlet Allegra Coleman.
Bigel and Mailer are currently developing “Ringside” for Mailer’s father, Norman Mailer, to direct.
