Relativity Media has released two new images from their upcoming action comedy, “The Family.” The film is directed by Luc Besson and executive produced in part by Martin Scorsese. The film follows a mafia boss and his family (Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer) as they relocate to a small French town under witness protection after giving the feds information on the mob. Here’s more on the film:
The brand new stills feature Dianna Agron and John D’Leo as Belle and Warren Manzoni. Being the new kids in school is never easy, but Belle and Warren’s classmates learn quickly that these siblings are a force to be reckoned with.
In the off-beat action comedy “The Family,” a mafia boss and his family are relocated to a sleepy town in France under the witness protection program after snitching on the mob. Despite the best efforts of Agent Stansfield (Tommy Lee Jones) to keep them in line, Fred Manzoni (Robert DeNiro), his wife Maggie (Michelle Pfeiffer) and their children Belle (Dianna Agron) and Warren (John D’Leo) can’t help but revert to old habits and blow their cover by handling their problems the “family” way, enabling their former mafia cronies to track them down. Chaos ensues as old scores are settled in the unlikeliest of settings in this darkly funny film by Luc Besson (Taken, Transporter).
The two stills show Dianna Agron and John D’Leo as Belle and Warren Manzoni, the two children of Fred Manzoni (DeNiro). The Manzoni children’s classmates soon realize that these are no ordinary new kids.
“The Family” is written by Besson and Michael Caleo, based on the novel “Malavita” by Tonio Benacquista. The cast also includes Tommy Lee Jones and the film is produced by Virginie-Silla Besson and Ryan Kavanaugh. Along with Scorsese, Tucker Tooley acted as executive producer and Ron Burkle and Jason Colbeck acted as co-executive producers.
