Julianna Margulies, Emily Mortimer and Alan Arkin have joined the indie family comedy “City Island” which Raymond De Felitta (“The Thing About My Folks,” “Two Family House”) will direct says Reuters.
Andy Garcia plays Vince Rizzo, a Bronx prison official who realizes that an inmate (Steven Strait) is his secret love child. His efforts to become his guardian lead to comic complications.
Margulies plays Rizzo’s wife, Arkin plays a teacher in his acting class, and Mortimer plays a fellow student he befriends. Garcia’s daughter Dominik Garcia-Lorido plays his onscreen daughter.
Shooting began this week on location in the Bronx fishing neighborhood where the story is set.
