Among the many activities in process, the filming of the family movie “The Dog of Christmas”, written by Enrico Pinocci with the collaboration of Francesco Malavenda and set in some of the most evocative locations of the Côte d’Azur, like Montecarlo, Menton and Roquebrune-Cap Martin, will end November next. The protagonist of this movie is a lovely ShihTzu, named Alex, who arrives on Christmas Eve in a wealthy family as a gift from the husband to his wife and their three children. The spouse that hates dogs does not appreciate the surprise, so a difficult cohabitation between the lady and Alex begins, until one day… Last spring, the production site of this film received the visit of the Italian Ambassador to Monaco, HE Cristiano Gallo, who wanted to personally congratulate Pinocci for his intense cinematographic activity in the two Riviera.
The presentation of the film, which will be distributed in 40 countries, took place at the at Cannes Cinema Festival in May 2018, while the international premiere will be held at the American Film Market, in time for Christmas. In the meantime, the movies “Daddy Do not Marry Again that will be filmed in Italy at Civitanova Marche, with Dean Cain (Lois & Clark -Superman last Adventures, Out of time, God’s dead), and the musical for families “Teen Star Academy 2” are in pre-production.
Like the first film, the sequel will be filmed between the French Riviera and Italy. Instead, thanks to the agreement defined with the entrepreneur Rolando Canestrini, owner of the Lilly Palm Resort, “In Search of Lost City” will be filmed between Watamu and Malindi in Kenya, while “The White Stallion” in Beverly Hills and in a ranch in San Luis Obispo, in North Los Angeles. And it is in this film that we will see the fifteen-year-old daughter of Pinocci, Letizia, a young movie star, for the first time in America. The agreements for the start of this movie have been set for July 2019, in time for Letizia to finish school. Like her father, Letizia was born in Rome, but as a child she moved with her family to Monte-Carlo, where she is enrolled at the International School of Monaco. The American actor and director Bret Roberts is also coaching her to improving her talent. Since 2015 Pinocci has launched its film production projects by creating comedies for families, and engaging some famous Hollywood stars. Since very young, Letizia and her sister Rebecca started acting in some of the films produced by their father.
While Rebecca started acting in 2013 in “Fabulous Christmas”, in 2106 she and Letizia were together on the set of the film “Teen Star Academy”, filmed in Monte-Carlo and other cities of the French Riviera, with international actors such as John Savage (Hair, The Huntsman, The Godfather, The Thin Red Line), Blanca Blanco (Fake News, Torch, America Romance) and Bret Roberts (May, Pearl Harbor, Nightstalker).
In 2017, Letizia starred again in “Mission Possible” with James Duval (Donnie Darko, Independence Day, Out in 60 seconds, Doom Generation), Chris Coppola (The Legend of Beowulf, Postal, Friday 13, Polar Express), John Savage, Bret Roberts, and Blanca Blanco. In 2018, the star sisters were enrolled together, in the cast of “Six children and one grandfather”, where Letizia played the lead role, along with the Academy Award® nominee Burt Young (Rocky, Chinatown, Winning Moves, Once upon a Time in America) and John Savage, Blanca Blanco and Bret Roberts. The fourth film for Letizia and the third for Rebecca is “The dog of Christmas”, with Brian McGuire (1 World 100 Lonely, Window licker, Sick of it All), John Savage, James Duval, Blanca Blanco, Bret Roberts and Chris Coppola.
The two prodigy children also starred together in 2018 in “Mission Possible”, in “Daddy Do not Marry Again” and in the romantic comedy “Jonny Zumba”, while in 2019 both will be part of the cast of “2 Hearts and 3 Puppies at Christmas “, set again on the French Riviera.
Thanks to its link with the United States, which boasts a huge film market, Movie On Pictures Ltd enjoys a vast distribution network across the world. “After studying the international market for years, I focused my activity mainly on the production of generic films – comments Pinocci “Receiving two important awards in London has made me very happy. I can not wait to develop the goals I have set myself, the launch of six films a year starting from 2019”. It seems that the young emerging actresses Letizia and Rebecca have taken the same determination from their father’s DNA, and that their presence in the cast of some of the films produced by their father is really deserved!
