Oscar winner Martin Scorsese is now officially appointed as executive producer on EuropaCorp and Relativity's mafia action film Malavita, directed by Luc Besson (The Fifth Element, The Professional) and starring Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, Tommy Lee Jones, Dianna Agron and John D’Leo.

Scorsese and Besson started on Malavita with an informal partnership where he played an important role offering creative consultation before and during filming. Now that Scorsese's role has been formalized as executive producer, he will continue to work with Besson throughout the film's post-production and editing process.

The October 18 release is the story of the Manzonis, a notorious mafia family who gets relocated to Normandy, France under the witness protection program. While they do their best to fit in, old habits die hard and they soon find themselves handling things the “family” way.

The script is adapted by Besson from the book "Badfellas" by author Tonino Benacquista. Virginie Besson-Silla from EuropaCorp is producing. Relativity's Ryan Kavanaugh is producing, while the studio's Tucker Tooley will executive produce along with Scorsese.
