Buono, Bankole move into ‘Other Worlds’

'Married' writer Strugatz makes directing debut

Cara Buono (“Hulk”) and Isaach de Bankole (“Ghost Dog”) will star in the sci-fi comedy “From Other Worlds,” from “L.I.E.” producers Linda Moran and Rene Bastian’s Belladonna Prods. and Diana Williams (“Our Song”) of Exit Five Entertainment.

Screenwriter Barry Strugatz, whose credits include Jonathan Demme’s “Married to the Mob” and Susan Seidelman’s “She-Devil,” makes his feature directing debut on the project, which started shooting June 5 in New York.

Buono plays a depressed Brooklyn housewife sleepwalking through life until she encounters a UFO in her backyard.

Busy Buono

In addition to her acting work, Buono has two screenplays in development at Miramax: an adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s first novel, “This Side of Paradise,” and a U.S. remake of Cedric Klapisch’s French comedy “When the Cat’s Away,” co-scripted with Brad Anderson.

No director is attached to either project; the latter previously was slated for Anderson and then Gabriele Muccino to direct, but it so far has failed to come together.
