Leone Film Group


Co-Owner / CEO

The daughter of the late legendary Italian spaghetti western director Sergio Leone, Leone scored a major coupe for her Leone Film Group in July 2021 when it signed a co-production pact with ViacomCBS International Studios calling for it to make Italian-language content for the global market in both scripted and unscripted formats. Earlier in the year, the company — which she runs with her brother Andrea — closed a deal with ErosSTX International to distribute its films in Italy, including Guy Ritchie’s “Operation Fortune,” starring Jason Statham, and Martin Campbell’s “Memory,” starring Liam Neeson. Leone Film Group was the Italian distributor of such hits as “Knives Out,” “1917” and “La La Land.”
