Tilda Swinton to star in ‘I Am Love’

Romantic drama shoots in Milan this summer

Tilda Swinton will star in Italo helmer Luca Guadagnino’s “Io sono l’amore” (I Am Love), a romantic drama in which she will play a foreign society matron in Milan who falls for a young chef.

Guadagnino, whose previous credits include Swinton starrer “The Protagonists” and Sony’s “Melissa P.,” will start shooting the Italo-language pic in Milan this summer.

“L’amore” is about “the irreparable consequences brought about by love in a high-bourgeois family,” Guadagnino said.

Attached alongside Swinton is Italian actress Alba Rohrwacher. Other cast is still being decided.

Pic is being co-produced by Guadagnino’s First Sun shingle and Mikado, with some financing from the Italian government.
