Filming has started on the sequel to ‘The Invisible Boy’, directed once again by Oscar winner Gabriele Salvatores, written by Alessandro Fabbri, Ludovica Rampoldi and Stefano Sardo, and produced by Indigo Film with Rai Cinema, in collaboration with the Friuli Venezia Giulia Film Commission. Starring in the movie, alongside the now 16 year old “invisible boy”, Michele Silenzi (Ludovico Girardello), is his twin sister Natasha (Galatea Bellugi), whose existence is revealed at the end of the first chapter of the saga. The cast also includes Ksenia Rappoport, Noa Zatta, Ivan Franek and Valeria Golino.
“What convinced us to continue was not just the response and appreciation shown by our young audience, it was also that we still had a lot of love for our invisible boy; we wanted to continue to follow his adventures as a sixteen year old adolescent. He has grown up and had to face the difficulties of being ‘special’ in the normal everyday world”, explains the director, Gabriele Salvatores.
Filming started on the first of August and will continue, almost entirely in Trieste, for 12 weeks. The movie will be released in 2017 and will be distributed by 01 Distribution.
