by Piero Messina and Mario Martone’s next film, Capri – Batterie), while the film also stars Sandra Milo, Antonio Catania, Ugo Conti, Massimo Ghini, Andrea Preti, Roberto Ciuffoli, Gisella Donadoni, Annabella Calabrese and Mirko Trovato.

Enzo, a professor of astrophysics in Trieste, lives on a country estate, far from a life devoted to underfunded university research, with a wife who is still seeing her ex-husband and a mother who despises him. One day, the professor accidentally saves the life of a hit man, who now owes him a favour: he’ll kill his worst enemy. But perhaps Enzo should fear his own family more than an assassin... The film was written by the director, along with Heidrun Schleef, Luca De Benedittis, Diego Abatantuono and David Mcwater, and was produced by Falkor Production, Turnus Film and Viva Productions. Markus Hürsch is in charge of photography, and Fabrizio Nicora is in charge of set design. 

Filming will commence in Acquaviva delle Fonti, at the planetary astronomical observatory, and will continue for five weeks in Puglia, between Casarano, Lecce, Tricase, Bari and Trani, before a further week of filming in Gstaad, Switzerland. The film is due to be released next autumn by Koch Media in Italy and Filmcoop in Switzerland.

Denis Rabaglia directed Light Blue in 2000 and Marcello Marcello [+see also:
