Michael Caine has joined the cast of “Mr. Morgan’s Last Love” for Kaminski Stiehm Film, Bavaria Pictures and Elzevir Films reports Variety.
A €6 million adaptation of Francoise Dorner’s novel “La douceur assassin”, the story centers on a widowed and retired American philosophy professor who meets a much younger woman in Paris. The pair form a special relationship, not about sex but more than friendship, and rekindle the lost joy in both their lives.
Sandra Nettelbeck (“Mostly Martha”) will direct the project and adapted the script, changing the French Monsieur Armand character to the American Mr. Morgan.
Shooting kicks off in August around Paris and Cologne. It’s expected to be Caine’s first project after he finishes shooting “The Dark Knight Rises” starting in May.
