After consulting informally on Luc Besson‘s mafia actioner Malavita, Oscar-winner Martin Scorsese has come aboard the Robert De Niro–Tommy Lee Jones starrer as executive producer. Scorsese and Besson put their heads together through the film’s pre-production and filming and will continue collaborating as the EuropaCorp and Relativity production heads toward its October 18 release date. Michelle Pfeiffer, Dianna Agron and John D’Leo also star in the dark comedy about the Manzonis, a mob family that goes into witness protection in Normandy, France. Besson is producing and directing from his script, adapted with Michael Caleo from Tonino Benacquista’s book Badfellas. Virginie Besson-Silla is producing for EuropaCorp, with Relativity’s Ryan Kavanaugh producing and Tucker Tooley executive producing. WME and manager Rick Yorn repped Scorsese in the deal.
