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

Tuesday, February 12th, 2013

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.

The Weinstein Company & Martin Scorsese Partner to Present “EASY MONEY”

Saturday, June 16th, 2012

The Weinstein Company (TWC) announced today that it is partnering with Academy Award® winning filmmaker Martin Scorsese to present Daniel Espinosa’s acclaimed Swedish crime thriller, EASY MONEY in New York on July 11, 2012 and Los Angeles , on July 13, 2012. Based on the international best-selling novel Snabba Cash by Jens Lapidus, EASY MONEY is a taut and alluring suspense thriller set in the world of organized crime starring Joel Kinnaman (AMC’s “The Killing”), Matias Varela (STORM), Dragomir Mrsic (WALLANDER), Dejan Čukić (THE TRAP), and Fares Fares (SAFE HOUSE). The announcement was made today by TWC Co-Chairman Harvey Weinstein.

EASY MONEY (the English translation of “Snabba Cash”) interweaves the stories of three key players related to a Swedish drug trafficking ring. Lower-class business student JW (Joel Kinnaman from AMC’s ‘The Killing’) falls in love with a sexy heiress while living a double life mingling with Stockholm ’s wealthy elite. To keep up the façade of his lifestyle, he’s lured into a world of crime. Jorge is a petty fugitive on the run from both the police and Serbian mafia. He hopes that brokering a massive cocaine deal will allow him to escape for good. Mafia enforcer Mrado is on the hunt for Jorge, but his efforts are complicated when he’s unexpectedly saddled with caring for his young daughter. As JW’s journey ventures deeper into the dark world of organized crime, the fate of all three men becomes entangled and ends with a dramatic struggle for life and death.

“EASY MONEY affirms Daniel Espinosa is a major talent and features the star- making performance by “The Killings”, Joel Kinnaman,” said Weinstein. “This taut suspense thriller struck a chord with me, and I’m excited that a visionary like Martin Scorsese shares my passion for this film.”

“I was deeply impressed by Daniel Espinosa’s EASY MONEY – by the harsh, elemental style, which reflects the milieu and the lives of the characters; by the powerful sense of fate, of well-meaning people who take one wrong turn and end up paying a terrible price; by the frightening and surprising evolution of the hero. Easy Money is a tough story and a film to be reckoned with,” said Scorsese.

Added Espinosa, “It’s an honor for me, that Harvey Weinstein and Martin Scorsese have embraced EASY MONEY and share my passion for storytelling. I couldn’t imagine this film being in better hands for its U.S. debut.”

The film was directed by Daniel Espinosa, with a screenplay by Jens Lapidus and Maria Karlsson, and produced by Fredrik Wikstrom. Michael Hjorth served as executive producer. Lapidus’ international best-selling novel is the first in a trilogy, published by Wahlström & Widstrand, that has developed a fiercely loyal global following and Snabba Cash was just released in the U.S. last month by Random House Imprint Pantheon. Espinosa is currently developing THE OUTSIDER with Warner Bros, and his film SAFE HOUSE has crossed the $200 million mark in worldwide box office.

Release Date: October 14, 2011

Starring: Kenny Wormald, Julianne Hough, Andie MacDowell and Dennis Quaid
Directed by: Craig Brewer

Writer/Director Craig Brewer (“Hustle & Flow,” “Black Snake Moan”) delivers a new take of the beloved 1984 classic film, “Footloose.” Ren MacCormack (played by newcomer Kenny Wormald) is transplanted from Boston to the small southern town of Bomont where he experiences a heavy dose of culture shock. A few years prior, the community was rocked by a tragic accident that killed five teenagers after a night out and Bomont’s local councilmen and the beloved Reverend Shaw Moore (Dennis Quaid) responded by implementing ordinances that prohibit loud music and dancing. Not one to bow to the status quo, Ren challenges the ban, revitalizing the town and falling in love with the minister’s troubled daughter Ariel (Julianne Hough) in the process.

Like Crazy explores how a couple faces the real challenges of being together and of being apart. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize for Best Picture at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and of the Special Jury Prize for Best Actress for Felicity Jones, Like Crazy depicts both the hopefulness and the heartbreak of love.
