CANNES — Stealth Media Group has boarding comedy “Road to Capri” for international sales, and will introduce the project to buyers in Cannes. Atlas Distribution Company will handle U.S. distribution.
The cast includes Frankie Muniz (“Malcolm in the Middle”), Virginia Madsen (“Sideways”), Ian McShane (“Deadwood”), Maria Grazia Cucinotta (“Il Postino”), Franco Nero (“Django”) and Nicolas Vaporidis (“Men Vs Women”).
The film follows two young men, one American, Daniel (Muniz), and the other Italian, Luca (Vaporidis), who have absolutely nothing in common until one fateful day. On that day each would learn of the death of their father — but what neither was expecting to learn was that their father was the same man, and that they had inherited the family home in Capri, equally. Under the guidance of their uncle, Guido (Nero), they set out on a road of discovery that leads to Capri and the “sharing” of the family home.
The film is in pre-production at Cinecitta Studios in Rome, and will start principal photography in June. Shooting will take place in Rome, Milan, Florence, Naples and Capri.
Stealth compares the project to “Under the Tuscan Sun” and “To Rome With Love.”

Executive producers are Steve G. Kaplan, Rainstorm Entertainment, and Carol Bidault and Andrea Giannattasio at EMovies.
