Tempo are delighted to announce our next production THE HONEYMOON with our partners at Notorious Pictures in Italy, with photography commencing September 2021.
“The Honeymoon” is a romantic comedy about the challenges facing a new marriage when what is supposed to be one of the most wonderful, intimate events goes calamitously wrong. It’s also a film about friendship, and the emotional separation that happens when two life-long best friends have to deal with the fact that one of them is going off to form a new life with his new bride, and the other is inevitably being left behind.
The Honeymoon, is written and will be directed by Dean Craig and stars Oscar® nominee Maria Bakalova (Borat Subsequent Moviefilm), Pico Alexander (Home Again), Asim Chaudhry (People Just Do Nothing) and Lucas Bravo (Emily in Paris). Englishman, Adam and his American bride, Sarah are about to embark on the romantic honeymoon of a lifetime in Venice, Italy. But when the newlyweds’ trip is gatecrashed by Adam’s excessively needy best friend, Ed, it inadvertently turns their perfect lovers’ holiday into a complete disaster.
Notorious President and CEO Guglielmo Marchetti said: “Our international production successfully continues: we will start shooting The Honeymoon with an international cast in one of the most beautiful locations in Italy: Venice. We are very happy to renew the collaboration with an extraordinary team that has already demonstrated excellent qualities. In particular happy to be back to collaborate with Dean Craig who wrote and will direct the film, with Piers Tempest who is a great producer and last but not least the extraordinary new cast. We are pleased to have the international sales company Endeavor Content as a partner in this strategic collaboration based on our shared cinematic and commercial vision.”
Maria Bakalova comments; “This film intrigued me because it’s an escapist comedy that put a twist on the classic buddy movie format by including a strong female character, particularly from Eastern Europe. I think after almost two years of this pandemic, we’re all looking for something to lift our spirits and help us mentally escape our apartments. Very glad to be on the producing team of the film as well” Writer and Director Dean Craig ; “It’s such a pleasure to be working again in Italy with our fantastic producing team at Notorious and Tempo. With our incredibly talented young cast, together with the magic of shooting in Venice, we want to give audiences a truly fun and hilariously entertaining ride.”
