Italian film director, producer, screenwriter and actor, Nanni Moretti "The Son's Room" is making a new movie, a comedy "We Have a Pope." He has also hired veteran 83 year-old French actor, Michel Piccoli ("le M├ępris," "La belle noiseuse") to star in the lead role as Cardinal/Pope.

Piccoli will star as a cardinal who gets the jitters after being elected pope. Moretti will play the Pope's psychiatrist in the $12 million movie, as announced previously.

Moretti wrote the script with screenwriter Federica Pontremoli and Francesco Piccolo. They previously collaborated on Moretti's previous movie, "The Caiman."

Moretti's Sacher Film is in collaboration with Domenico Procacci's Fandango and French producer Jean Labadie's Le Pact to produce the movie.

Shooting is scheduled to begin in Italy next month.
