Iervolino and Lady Bacardi Entertainment (“ILBE” or “the Company”) – a company specialised in the production of cinematographic, television, web series and short content, listed on the AIM Italia market and previously called Iervolino Entertainment – announces the start of production of Muti, interpreted by Oscar winner Morgan Freeman.
The film will be directed by George Gallo, Francesco Cinquemani and Luca Giliberto. Filming is scheduled to start in Mississippi, USA, and then will continue later in Italy.
ILBE has signed agreements with the company RedBox Entertainment for distribution in the US and Canada and with WWPS for worldwide distribution (excluding Italy, the US and Canada). The production will bring ILBE guaranteed minimum revenues for the activities carried out both in the USA and in Italy of approximately €12.1 million.
Andrea Iervolino commented: “I’m really excited about the launch of this project, which involves Italian authors for an Italian film destined for the global market. I’m also happy to be able to work again with Morgan Freeman, who already starred in one of our past productions. He’s one of the most popular actors in Hollywood. The agreement with RedBox, a top American company in the sector, was also decisive for our business“.
