Kat Coiro and Kate Bosworth are re-teaming on an untitled Italy project following their collaboraton on “Life Happens.”
The Italy project will star Boswrith and be written and directed by Kat Coiro. Lauren Bratman, Bosworth and Coiro are producing with 1821 Pictures financing with shooting in Ischia and Naples in Italy and in Los Angeles.
Film is about a married woman named (portrayed by Bosworth) who is struggling to write a memoir about her grandmother and ends up embarking upon an affair with a wanderlusty 19-year-old on the idyllic island of Ischia. Her husband, played by Iddo Goldberg, is a tightly wound and self-restrained viola player from London.
Paris Kasidokostas Latsis and Terry Dougas are exec producing.
Coiro directed the Funny or Die short film “Idiots,” starring Zoe Saldana, Bosworth and Janeane Garofalo. Coiro’s newest film “Life Happens” premieres this weekend at the Los Angeles Film Festival and centers on three women and roommates living in modern day Los Angeles – one of whom gets pregnant after a one night stand.
Bosworth, Krysten Ritter, Rachel Bilson and Jason Biggs star. WME is handling domestic rights to “Life Happens” and Lionsgate is handling international.
“This is my third film now with Kate Bosworth,” Coiro said. “I’m beyond thrilled to be able to go off to Italy with her and have her play a complicated married woman who falls for a younger man. I think she can do anything and audiences can fall in love with her time and again.”
Bosworth was most recently seen in “Another Happy Day” and “Little Birds,” both which premiered at Sundance in Janaury. She will next be seen in the remake of “Straw Dogs” and just completed the thriller “Black Rock” with Lake Bell.
She is represented by WME and One Talent Management. Coiro is repped by WME and Zero Gravity Management. Goldberg is repped the The Collective.
