An updated remake of Vittorio De Sica's post-war Italian masterpiece, about an elderly man struggling to survive in contemporary NYC with little money while facing eviction from a spoiled, vindictive landlady.

Written and Directed by Roy Carlo and slated to star Dominic Chianese (Godfather II, The Sopranos, Boardwalk Empire) and Cathy Moriarity (Raging Bull, Analyze That), it will be shot entirely on location in Brooklyn.
* Produced in cooperation with Intramovies (Italia).
