Principal photography began August 8, 2012 and completed on October 27, 2012. Filming took place on location in Normandy, Gacé, Le Sap, and in New York City. Some of the filming also took place in the city of L’Aigle. It was one of the first films to be shot in Cité du Cinéma, the largest film studio facility ever built in Saint-Denis in France, founded by Luc Besson. In May 2013, it was revealed that the film, originally titled Malavita, would be retitled The Family in the United States, while other territories such as France retain the Malavita title.
In June 2012, it was confirmed that Michelle Pfeiffer will be joining the cast of The Family. Before casting the movie, Besson states that author Tonino Benacquista said “it would be so perfect if Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer played the roles.” “It was like a dream.” said Besson. Besson always thought of Dianna Agron while writing the character Belle Blake. Despite this, Agron was submitted to many auditions. Agron later won the part. All the cast and crew of Glee supported Dianna’s departure from the show to be part of the film. A dog named Emeron was chosen to be Malavita, the canine pet of the main family, who follows De Niro‘s character everywhere he goes. Emeron was trained by a specialist, and De Niro was the only person, besides the dog trainer, to spend time with him during the workout.
The film is going to be released by Relativity Media on September 13, 2013. The Motion Picture Association of America gave the film an R rating for violence, language and brief sexuality. The first trailer of The Family was released on June 4, 2013. For France, the first trailer forMalavita was released in mid-July 2013. In August, some TV spots were released to promote the film.
Sounds like it should be fun.
