How’s this for an eclectic cast? Woody Allen, Sofia Vergara, Sharon Stone, Liev Schreiber and Vanessa Paradis are set to star in the comedy “Fading Gigolo,” which John Turturro has written and will direct and star in. QED International has just come aboard to produce and finance the project, according to Variety.
“Gigolo” has Allen as a book store proprietor who convinces his friend, played by Turturro, that he should become a gigolo.
Antidote Films’ Jeffrey Levy-Hinte and Cinetic Media’s Bart Walker are producing along with QED’s Bill Block, Paul Hanson, Sasha Shapiro and Anton Lessine. Production is scheduled for October in New York.
QED also is financing and producing the Arnold Schwarzenegger actioner “Ten” for Open Road and Neil Blomkamp’s “District 9” follow-up “Elysium” for Sony.
