Tornatore's 'Baaria' cast grows


ROME -- Two more actors signed on to play roles in Giuseppe Tornatore's much-heralded film "Baaria," the follow-up to last year's award-winning film "La Sconosciuta" (The Unknown Woman), bringing the cast of feature film actors to 45 -- more than any Italian film in a decade, according to local media reports.

The Sicilian saga from the Oscar-winning director of "Cinema Paradiso," which is set for release in fall 2008, could involve as many as 60 feature actors and a credited cast of more than 100 when completed.
