The feature will shoot in the harbor of Santa Margherita Ligure (Genoa) and in the Lake Como Area of Italy.

Special Unit, Bienvenue chez les Ch’tis), and Academy Award nominee Terence Stamp (Miss Peregrine’s, The Limey).
Murder Mystery is directed by Kyle Newacheck (Game Over, Man!, Workaholics) and written by James Vanderbilt (The Amazing Spiderman, White House Down, Zodiac).
