Kevin Costner and his “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves” and “Waterworld” director Kevin Reynolds are re-teaming for the $50 million spy comedy “Learning Italian” reports Variety.
The story follows a CIA agent whose punishment for a mission mistake is to be stationed in a Sicilian seaside village to keep an eye on an organised crime boss. He soon falls for the place and when ordered back home, he must come up with a fake threat to justify his continued stay there.
The project, which Costner will star in and produce, will shoot later this year mostly at the Bavaria Film Studios near Munich, Germany. Some shooting is also expected to take place around the Aeolian Islands.
