Hammer, Rush Set For Tucci’s “Final Portait”

Armie Hammer and Geoffrey Rush are set to star in Stanley Tucci’s nee drama “Final Portrait” for Riverstone Pictures. Shooting begins later this month.

The story focuses on the end of Swiss painter and surreal sculpturist Alberto Giacometti’s life. At the time Lord, a young American writer, was studying him as the artist painted Lord’s picture in 1964.

Giacometti died two years later in Switzerland. Tucci directs from his own script, based on James Lord’s book “A Giacometti Portrait”. Gail Egan, Nik Bower and Ilann Girard will produce.
