Leslie Bibb is to star in ‘About My Father’.
The 46-12 months-outdated actress will be part of forces with Robert De Niro and stand-up comic Sebastian Maniscalco in the film, which is primarily based on the comic’s everyday living and his partnership with his dad.
According to Deadline, ‘Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby’ star Bibb is to portray Ellie, Maniscalco’s character’s fiancée.
Maniscalco has penned the screenplay with Austen Earl, and Laura Terruso is to direct the motion photograph.
In the comedy film, when Maniscalco tells his outdated-university Italian immigrant father Salvo (De Niro) that he is likely to suggest to his all-American girlfriend, Salvo insists on crashing a weekend with her mothers and fathers.
When it 1st seems as even though the two households have nothing in typical as their cultures clash, they are household by the stop of the weekend.
De Niro and Maniscalco earlier worked together on Netflix motion picture ‘The Irishman’.
Depth of Field’s Chris and Paul Weitz are making the project together with Andrew Miano, while Judi Marmel is established to provide as an government producer.
Nathan Kahane, president of the Lionsgate Motion Photo Group, mentioned: “The way Sebastian talks about his father, Salvo seems to us like the form of male who thinks that Robert De Niro need to play him in a film. So we thought, why not?
“Essentially, Robert De Niro is exceptionally selective about the projects he chooses, so we are thrilled that he responded so strongly to this hilarious and heartfelt screenplay. He’ll make a excellent and funny pairing with Sebastian and we won’t be able to wait to commence manufacturing afterwards this calendar year.”
Paul Weitz included: “We’ve been fans of Laura’s for a although. Like Sebastian, her mom and dad are Italian immigrants and she locked into this tale.”
