Eos onboard ‘Pope’

World Brief

Former Kirch Group exec Jan Mojto’s new shingle, Eos Entertainment, has boarded Italian production company Lux Vide’s TV pic “Pope John XXIII.”

Two-parter, starring Edward Asner, Massimo Ghini and Claude Rich, is in post-production. International distribution will be handled by Beta Film, a subsid of Germany’s cash-strapped Kirch.

Project is the first in a series of portraits of high-profile personalities of the 20th century, including Guglielmo Marconi and Coco Chanel.

The Lux/Eos production will be competing with another TV movie on John XXIII, “The Good Pope,” by Italy’s DeAngelis Group and Germany’s Victory Media, and starring Bob Hoskins.
