Sidney Kimmel Entertainment announced that it will co-finance and co-produce Mr Morgan’s Last Love, a comedic melodrama that has Michael Caine attached to star. The story is based on the Francoise Dorner novel La Douceur Assassine and centers on a retired, lonely American widower in Paris whose encounter with a free-spirited and vibrantly naive beautiful young French woman brightens his life. Together they share a precious moment that not only touches their hearts but changes their lives. Sandra Nettlebeck wrote the adaptation and is directing the film, which has begun shooting in Paris and co-stars Clémence Poésy, Justin Kirk, Jane Alexander, Anne Alvaro and Gillian Anderson. Bavaria Pictures, Kaminski Stiehm Film and Senator Film will co-produce with Belgium-based Scope Pictures and SKE in association with Elzevir Films. Sidney Kimmel will also produce, and SKE will rep domestic distribution rights; Bavaria Film reps foreign.
