Mamet Pens Depression-Era “Sorrento”

Firefly and Bla Bla Bla Productions are teaming on the $10 million Depression-era romantic drama “Come Back To Sorrento” says The Hollywood Reporter.

David Mamet (“Wag the Dog,” “State and Main”) adapted the script from Dawn Powell’s novel about a music teacher with a mysterious past. The teacher finds more than he expected when he travels to a small town in Ohio to teach music and comes to love a housewife seeking a long-forgotten dream.

Felicity Huffman, William H. Macy and Rebecca Pidgeon are all in negotiations to star. Michael Worth (“God’s Ears”) directs the project while Mamet, Worth, Matthew Hobbs and Kristin Holt will produce.
