Set to begin production in early 2013, Arianda (Born Yesterday, "Midnight in Paris") will co-star opposite Brazilian actor Wagner Moura ("Romance," "The Three Marias," "Paraíso Tropical") as Fellini. The cast will also include William H. Macy, Terrence Howard and Peter Dinklage.
Written and directed by Bromell ("Homeland," "Northern Exposure"), the film, according to press notes, "takes place during Fellini and Masina's visit to Los Angeles for the 1958 Academy Awards where their film 'Nights of Cabiria' won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. Often called his muse, Masina was married to Fellini for fifty years until his passing in 1993. Masina died just months after her husband."
