Martin Scorsese sued by Italy's Cecchi Gori

Producer claims US director reneged on film deal

Martin Scorsese sued by Italy's Cecchi Gori

(ANSA) - New York, August 23 - Martin Scorsese is being sued by Italian film producer Vittorio Cecchi Gori for allegedly reneging on a contract to direct a film the two discussed 20 years ago. Cecchi Gori claims the US moviemaking great is not carrying out his obligation to develop the movie Silence, which tells the tale of Portuguese missionaries in Japan many hundreds of years ago investigating claims of Christian persecution on behalf of the Imperial family. According to the legal claim, Scorsese had assured Cecchi Gori he would direct the film. So far Cecchi Gori says his production house has spent 750,000 on developing the film. photo: Scorsese with Golden Globe for Hugo
