Italian newspapers today are quoting Sophia Loren as saying she is set to return to the silver screen in La Voce Umana (The Human Voice) based on French poet-writer Jean Cocteau’s one-person play first performed in 1930. The 78-year-old Oscar winner will be directed in the Italian language by her son Eduardo Ponti and begins the 3-week shoot this month in Rome, Naples and Ostia. Ponti is the son of movie producer Carlo Ponti and his latest short The Night Shift Belongs To The Stars screened at the Tribeca Film Festival. He previously directed Loren in his first feature film, 2002’s Cuori Estrani (Between Strangers).
