Piccoli to play Pope for Moretti

by 

French actor Michel Piccoli will star in Nanni Moretti’s upcoming film Habemus Papam, as a Pope who decides he doesn’t want the job as soon as he’s elected. Moretti, who starts shooting at the end of next January, will play a psychiatrist called in by the Vatican to resolve the problem.

The script was written by Moretti with Francesco Piccolo and Federica Pontremoli.

Domenico Procacci of Fandango has recently boarded the co-production between Moretti’s Sacher Film and French company Le Pacte, run by Jean Labadie (see news).
