“Made in Italy” is a family affair like no other in this new Liam Neeson film.
Neeson stars opposite his real-life son, Micheál Richardson, in the new dramedy from James D’Arcy. iFC Films released a freshly-minted trailer for “Made in Italy” on Tuesday.
In the film, Neeson and Richardson confront their past while working to sell their run-down Tuscan villa.
“[It] came about not through an agent shoehorning you into doing a script because it will show another facet of your career,” Neeson told Entertainment Weekly of the film. “James D’Arcy got in touch with me through my English agent.”
“She said, ‘Listen, I think you should read this, there’s something to it.’ I did and I sort of fell in love with it, and she said, ‘Maybe this is something good for you and Micheál, your son.’ And so it was kind of fate, I just felt like I had to do it,” he continued.
“Made in Italy” premieres August 7 in select theatres, drive-ins and video on demand.
