De Maria shooting “Lo spietato” starring Scamarcio
Shooting has started in Bari for Renato De Maria’s new feature Lo spietato [lit. The unforgiving], set between
the 1970s and the 199s, and starring Riccardo
Scamarcio, Sara Serraiocco, and Marie-Ange Casta.

is made possible by the logistic support of Apulia Film Commission. Written by
Renato De Maria, Valentina Strada, and Federico Gnisino, and produced by Angelo
Barbagallo, the film is loosely inspired by a true story.

The new film by the Roman director is an Italian-French co-production and is due to star Marco Giallini, Michela Cescon and Massimiliano Gallo.
Roberto Benigni will be back on the silver screen in the role of Geppetto in Matteo Garrone’s upcoming Pinocchio.
Nanni Moretti’s 13th film will be entitled Three Floors Up and will be based, for the first time in his career, on a novel, more specifically on Eshkol Nevo’s eponymous 2015 work.
