Piccoli to play Pope for Moretti
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.
