First Look: 'The Family' with De Niro and Pfeiffer Poster + Photos
The project formerly known as Malavita, and the latest film directed by Luc Besson, who said he was going to retire from directing but never did. We expect the trailer to hit very soon, but in the meantime, the first photos and poster for The Family, the new title for Malavita, have been unveiled. Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer star as the heads of the Manzoni family, a notorious mafia clan, that is relocated to Normandy, France under the witness protection program. Their two children are played by Dianna Agron ("Glee") and Joseph Perrino (Assassination of a High School President), both seen on the "family" poster.
The darkly comedic action film The Family is about the Manzonis, a notorious mafia family relocated to Normandy, France under the witness protection program. While they do their best to fit in, old habits die hard and they soon find themselves handling things the "family" way. Relativity's The Family, formerly known as Malavita, is directed by French filmmaker Luc Besson (La Femme Nikita, Leon: The Professional, The Fifth Element, Angel-A, Arthur and the Invisibles, The Lady) from a script co-written by Besson and Michael Caleo, based on Tonino Benacquista's novel. Co-produced by Relativity Media and Europa Corp, The Family will be released in US theaters starting September 20th this fall. See the trailer. Interested?
