Alison Brie, Aubrey Plaza, Alessandro Nivola Top Ensemble Comedy From Limelight & Duplass Brothers
Spin Me Round is the romantic comedy directed by Jeff Baena from a script he wrote with Alison Brie. Pic will be produced by the Duplass Brothers Productions and Limelight with the Italian executive production Iervolino Entertainment.
Filming will take place in Toscana until the end of June, near Pisa and also in Pistoia and Lucca.
Tim Heidecker, Ben Sinclair, Fred Armisen, Ayden Mayeri, Debby Ryan, Zach Woods, Ego Nwodim, Lauren Weedman, and Jake Picking round out the cast. Jeff Baena is the writer, producer and director of indie films The Little Hours (shot in Toscana a few years ago), Life After Beth, Horse Girl and Joshy, and he co-wrote I Heart Huckabees with David O Russell and created the series Cinema Toast with Duplass Brothers Productions for Showtime.
Alison Brie plays the manager of the Bakersfield, California franchise of the Italian chain eatery Tuscan Grove. She wins an all-expenses trip to the company’s gorgeous “institute” outside of Florence, Italy, and the chance to meet the restaurant chain’s wealthy and charismatic owner (Nivola). Along with a mismatched group of local American franchise managers, Amber finds a far different adventure than the romantic fantasy she had imagined.
