IMMIGRANT

IN DEVELOPMENT

He was Mozart's conspirator, Casanova's friend -- an adventurer, hopeless romantic, and a genius. Lorenzo Da Ponte was also a storyteller, whose real life surpassed his most extravagant plots.


When he fled to America at 56, penniless, with a heavy accent and mouths to feed, he would begin again at the bottom -- and storm his way to triumph at the top. Think Shakespeare in Love, think Don Giovanni, think immortality. An original fiction, inspired by an improbable hero and sensational unpublished material.

To be filmed in Italy, Austria, England, and America (in collaboration with Filmline Productions, Munich)
