De Niro, Barrymore And Beckinsale Set For Italian Remake

by | 08 April 2008

A-list Hollywood talent including Robert de Niro has joined the cast of Everybody's Fine, a remake of Italian family drama Stanno Tutti Bene.

The Taxi Driver star will work alongside Drew Barrymore, Sam Rockwell and Kate Beckinsale in the upcoming movie.

According to Variety, the starry cast will begin shooting the drama, written and directed by Kirk Jones, in Connecticut later this month.

Jones, who wrote and directed Waking Ned as well as helming recent children's film Nanny McPhee, joined the production after Hollywood Gang Productions and Cecchi Gora USA agreed a deal to remake Giuseppe Tornatore's 1990 movie Stanno Tutti Bene.

The original movie saw Sicilian retiree Matteo Scuro journeying to the Italian mainland after the death of his wife to visit his five estranged children, who live in Turin, Milan, Rome, Naples and Florence.

The upcoming remake, a Miramax Films project, will see De Niro following a similar path as he attempts to reconnect his family following the passing away of the matriarch only to discover that each of his grown children - with Barrymore, Beckinsale and Rockwell believed to be attached for some of these roles - are living lives far from the idyllic situations he had imagined.

De Niro can next be seen in Righteous Kill, reuniting with Heat co-star Al Pacino for a tale of linked murder cases which took places decades apart.
