Muccino ready to ‘Remember’

Italo helmer following up controversial 'Kiss'

ROME — Following last year’s phenomenally successful sleeper hit “The Last Kiss,” Italian director Gabriele Muccino started shooting his fourth feature, “Ricordati di me” (Remember Me) this week.

The family drama promises to be among the most eagerly anticipated domestic releases of 2003.

Pic stars Laura Morante, Fabrizio Bentivoglio, Monica Bellucci and the director’s brother Silvio Muccino and will be produced by Domenico Procacci through his Fandango banner. Italian release is scheduled for Feb. 14 through Medusa Film.

Chronicling the difficult transition to adulthood of a group thirtysomethings, “The Last Kiss” connected strongly with the key 18-35 demographic in Italy and sparked wide media debate about the generation of commitment-phobic eternal adolescents.

The film clocked 3.1 million admissions and $16.5 million at the box office, making it the top-grossing Italian production of 2001. It shared the audience award at Sundance this year and will open Aug. 16 in New York and Los Angeles via THINKFilm, with other U.S. cities to follow.

Next up, Muccino is slated to make his English-lingo debut with a U.S. remake for Miramax Films of Ettore Scola’s classic 1974 comedy-drama “We All Loved Each Other So Much,” scripted by Mike Weller.
