Kate Bosworth to Star in Third Film for Director Kat Coiro
Helmer's "Life Happens," also starring the actress, premieres at the Los Angeles Film Festival Saturday.
Kate Bosworth is set to star in writer/director Kat Coiro’s Untitled Italy Project, playing a married woman who embarks on an affair with a 19-year-old on the island of Ischia, Italy. Iddo Goldberg has been cast as the main character’s tightly-wound husband.
It will be Bosworth’s third project with Coiro, whose Life Happens, about three women living in Los Angeles, will have its world premiere Saturday at the Los Angeles Film Festival. The two also previously collaborated on a FunnyorDie.com short film Idiots.
The new feature, which will shoot in Ischia and Naples, Italy as well as L.A., will be produced by Lauren Bratman, Bosworth and Coiro. 1821 Pictures is providing the financing, with Paris Kasidokostas Latsis and Terry Dougas serving as exec producers.
"This is my third film now with Kate Bosworth. I’m beyond thrilled to be able to go off to Italy with her and have her play a complicated married woman who falls for a younger man,” Coiro said.
Bosworth, repped by WME and One Talent Management, was most recently seen in Another Happy Day as well as the indie Little Birds and will next appear on screen in the thriller Straw Dogs.
Coiro is repped by WME and Zero Gravity Management, while Goldberg is repped by The Collective.
