Maggie Smith, Kevin Kline Duel In “Lady”

Maggie Smith and Kevin Kline are set to star in Protagonist Pictures’ dramatic comedy “My Old Lady” which marks the directorial debut of prolific playwright and screenwriter Israel Horovitz (“Author! Author!”).

Horovitz also wrote the play that inspired the film. Kline plays a down-and-out New Yorker who travels to Paris to liquidate a valuable apartment he inherited from his estranged father.

Once he arrives, he discovers a refined old lady (Smith) living in the apartment with her daughter (Jane Birkin). His plans are thwarted when he discovers that due to French law, he will not actually get possession of the apartment until the woman dies.

Dominique Pinon (“Delicatessen”) will co-star, and shooting begins in Paris in September.
