Oscar-Winning Director Martin Scorsese is Executive Producer on Luc Besson’s Malavita

Oscar®-Winner Martin Scorsese is now officially appointed as Executive Producer on EuropaCorp and Relativity’s mafia action film currently-titled Malavita directed by Luc Besson (The Fifth Element, The Professional) and starring Oscar®-Winner Robert De Niro (Limitless, Heat), Oscar®-Nominee Michelle Pfeiffer (Dark Shadows, People Like Us), Oscar®-Winner Tommy Lee Jones (No Country For Old Men, Men in Black), Dianna Agron (Glee, I Am Number Four) and John D’Leo (The Wrestler, Wanderlust). Scorsese and Besson started on Malavita with an informal partnership where he played an important role offering creative consultation before and during filming. Now that Scorsese’s role has been formalized as executive producer, he will continue to work with Besson throughout the film’s post-production and editing process.

The mafia action film Malavita, in theaters October 18th, is the story of the Manzonis, a notorious mafia family who gets relocated to Normandy, France under the witness protection program. While they do their best to fit in, old habits die hard and they soon find themselves handling things the “family” way.

The script is adapted by Besson from the book Badfellas by author Tonino Benacquista. Virginie Besson-Silla (From Paris with Love) from EuropaCorp is producing. Relativity’s Ryan Kavanaugh (The Fighter) is producing, while the studio’s Tucker Tooley (Immortals) will executive produce along with Scorsese.
