Sidney Kimmel Entertainment will co-finance and co-produce German writer/director Sandra Nettlebeck's comedic melodrama "Mr. Morgan's Last Love" reports Reuters.

Based on Françoise Dorner's novel "La Douceur Assassine" and set in Paris, the film follows on a retired and lonely American widower (Michael Caine) whose chance encounter with a free-spirited, beautiful young French woman brightens his life.

Clémence Poésy ("127 Hours"), Justin Kirk ("Weeds" ), Jane Alexander ("All the President's Men"), Anne Alvaro ("The Diving Bell and the Butterfly") and Gillian Anderson ("The X-Files") also star.

Nettlebeck ("Mostly Martha") wrote the screenplay and shooting kicked off in Paris this week with Bavaria Pictures, Kaminski Stiehm Film and Senator Film producing.
