Directors, actors, electricians, stagehands, costume designers, tailors, designers, toolmakers and producers. Everyone told to stay at home. One day before before shooting. An exception even in the uncertain world of cinema. This recent happened with the filming of an Italian program “3 uomini in buca 9″. This program was not “arty” film or ramshackle comedy, but “a comedy with a funny story and up to date issues” said the director Francesco Ranieri Martinotti – “a sort of Italian Full Monty”. That is the story of three workers of a steel mill that once they had been laid off, meet almost by chance to challenge on a golf course with their former managers.
A project “with all the ingredients to achieve success with the viewing public,” assures the director. From the Cast: Vincenzo Salemme, Luisa Ranieri, Paolo Ruffini, Ricky Memphis and Maurizio Mattioli and everyone who worked on the film for months have decided to write directly to the vice president Piersilvio Berlusconi’s of the Mediaset group and director of content of the Mediaset Group, Alessandro Salem, to ask to reconsider the decision to halt the project in the final stages of preparation. Mediaset, however, have not replied and have no intention to start the shooting of the series.
The executive producer of Rodeo Drive Marco Poccioni said: “For eight months I had almost daily meetings with Medusa to decide every detail.” From the location, the go ahead for the steel mill Lucchini Piombino, the support of the City and Region of Tuscany. Instead, the visits which were made on the day of dress rehearsal with Luisa Ranieri, they received the bad news from Medusa: the stop to the shooting scheduled for May 14.
