Firefly, Bla Bla Bla team for Mamet film

'Come Back To Sorrento' Based on novel by Dawn Powell

LONDON -- U.K. production banner Firefly is teaming with L.A.-based producer Bla Bla Bla Productions to produce a David Mamet script entitled "Come Back To Sorrento."

Firefly, which has offices here, the Middle East and in Australia, said Wednesday the $10 million budgeted movie will be directed by Michael Worth ("God's Ears") and produced by Firefly's Matthew Hobbs with Bla Bla Bla's Kristin Holt, David Mamet and Michael Worth.

Based on a novel by Dawn Powell and set during The Great Depression the script details the story of a music teacher with a mysterious past. The teacher finds more than he expected when he travels to a small town in Ohio to teach music and comes to love a housewife seeking a long-forgotten dream.

Felicity Huffman, William H. Macy and Rebecca Pidgeon are all in negotiations to star in the film, Hobbs said.

The film is slated for production in 2010.
