Poland's Gremi on 'Island' with Garcia

Project was presented at Berlin's Co-production Market

MOSCOW -- For the first time in Polish film history, a local company is investing in a co-production with major Hollywood stars.

Krakow-based Gremi Film Production is providing 32% of the unspecified budget for U.S. film "City Island," directed by Raymond De Felitta and starring Andy Garcia, Gremi production coordinator Bozena Cerba told The Hollywood Reporter.

"The project was presented during the Co-production Market in Berlin 2008, and that is how we entered into the co-production," she said, adding that the movie, which is currently being filmed, is expected to be completed by early 2009.

Gremi's co-production credits include Peter Greenaway's "Nightwatching" and Janusz Kaminski's "Hania."
