Gary Oldman Joins Cast Of Paolo Sorrentino’s Untitled Naples-Set Feature

Gary Oldman has been tapped for the cast of Italian director Paolo Sorrentino’s as yet untitled, Naples-set new film.

As previously announced, the feature revolves around a character called Partenope, who, in Sorrentino’s own words, bears the name of her city but is neither a siren nor the mythical figure connected to the creation of Naples.

The film captures Partenope’s trajectory from her birth in 1950 to the current day, accompanied by a host of other characters, against the backdrop of Sorrentino’s native city of Naples, with its ability to both charm and cause harm.

There are no details on Oldman’s role, which follows his recent performances as British intelligence officer Jackson Lamb in Apple TV+’s Slow Horses and a brief appearance as Harry Truman in Oppenheimer.

Further fresh cast additions include Nello Mascia (Nostalgia, Gomorrah) and Biagio Izzo.

Previously announced cast members include Celeste Dalla Porta, Silvia Degrandi, Isabella Ferrari, Lorenzo Gleijeses, Peppe Lanzetta, Silvio Orlando, Luisa Ranieri, Stefania Sandrelli and Alfonso Santagata.

The film follows Sorrentino’s deeply-personal, Oscar-nominated 2021 drama Hand of God and is his 10 feature in a filmography that also includes the 2014 Oscar-winner The Great Beauty.

Shot between Naples and the island of Capri, the feature is an Italian-French co-production, written and directed by Sorrentino.

It is a Fremantle film produced by Lorenzo Mieli for The Apartment Pictures, a Fremantle Company; Anthony Vaccarello for Saint Laurent, Paolo Sorrentino for Numero 10 and Ardavan Safaee for Pathé. Douglas Urbanski is the Executive Producer.

Sales will be handled by UTA and Fremantle.
