The premiere fan-managed social network for Josh! Founded December 26, 1998
The film, helmed by Italian director Renato De Maria from a script penned by Philip Di Fiore and Lorenzo Costello, is inspired by true events and weaves a narrative about an American who inherits land in Italy and must fight the Calabrian mafia who want it for themselves.
Josh Hartnett would play a war-torn photojournalist from New York who inherits an orange grove in Italy with a petroleum cache beneath it that the ‘ndrangheta' want for themselves.
Riccardo Scamarcio is also reported to have signed on. The movie will mark the third collaboration for the Italian star and director De Maria, who has previously guided Scamarcio through La Prima Linea and the TV series Il secreto dell'acqua.
William Medici from Dolce Inc. is teaming up with producers Rene Bastian from Belladonna and Nicola De Angelis from De Angelis Group to finance the mafia thriller.
