Trio Boards Winterbottom’s Genova

A Mighty Heart helmer Michael Winterbottom has cast Colin Firth, Hope Davis and Catherine Keener in his next project, Genova.

The Hollywood Reporter says Winterbottom will shoot with his finalized cast at the end of June on location in the Italian city of Genova as well as in Boston, with post-production taking place in the U.K.

Produced by Andrew Eaton for Eaton and Winterbottom’s Revolution Films and co-financed by FilmFour, the U.K. Film Council and Aramid Entertainment, the movie also stars relative newcomers Willa Holland (“The O.C.”) and Perla Haney-Jardine (Kill Bill Vol. 2).

“Genova” is written by Winterbottom and Laurence Coriat, with whom the director collaborated on both A Mighty Heart and Wonderland was co-developed with FilmFour.

Billed as a horror mystery story, the screenplay revolves around two American girls and their British father who move to Italy after their mother dies.
