Luc Besson’s new gangster film Malavita
Besson will write and direct Malavita, and TheFilmStage was kind enough to suggest what we could expect from the film.
The film based, in a weird turn of events, on Tonino Benacquistas novel Badfellas centers on Giovanni Manzoni, a former criminal living with his family, whilst under the name of Fred Blake, in a small Normandy village. All is well and calm but, considering the career of Malavitas helmer (and the kinds of films put out in said career), we can bet things dont go well.
Malavita won’t be the only Besson project we can expect to see, as a part of a deal with producers Relativity they’ll also release Three Days to Kill, which he wrote together with Adi Hasak. With a director like Besson at the helm we can expect a pair of action packed movies, and after a slew of bad films from De Niro it’ll be great to see him return to the genre that really made him.
