In a story from The Hollywood Reporter, U.K. production entity Firefly is joining forces with L.A.-based Bla Bla Bla Productions to turn a David Mamet screenplay titled Come Back To Sorrento into a feature film.
According to Firefly, the $10 million budgeted picture will be directed by Michael Worth.
The script is based on a novel by Dawn Powell. It is set during The Great Depression and details the story of a music teacher with a mysterious past. The teacher gets more than he expected when he goes to a small town in Ohio to teach music. Things get complicated when he gets involved with a housewife seeking a forgotten dream.
Felicity Huffman, William H. Macy and Rebecca Pidgeon are all in talks to star in this project.
