Stanley Tucci readies for Final Portrait

Stanley Tucci Fortitude actor Stanley Tucci is preparing to helm a feature biopic of the artist Giacometti, currently in pre-production at a London studio.

Geoffrey Rush and Armie Hammer star in Final Portrait, with Tucci calling the shots from his own screenplay; Fred Hogge, Ilann Girard and Gail Egan produce for Potboiler and Olive Productions respectively.

Subscribers to Production Intelligence can log in for exact shoot dates, studio details and listings of crucial hires including line producer, location manager, production designer, production manager and casting director.

The feature is based on the book A Giacometti Portrait by American art critic James Lord, and explores how the writer and his subject  became friends  a relationship which later became strained when Lord sat for the famous Swiss painter and sculptor in 1960s Paris.

Tucci has been in the director’s chair before – the last time being 2007’s Blind Date – but Final Portrait marks his major feature debut behind the camera.

The feature is one of 80 projects currently in pre-production on PI; non-subscribers can click here for a demo.
