Bellucci a stripper?!

02.24.2004

John Cusack, Billy Bob Thornton and Monica Bellucci will star in the Harold Ramis (CADDYSHACK, GROUNDHOG'S DAY) dark comedy THE ICE HARVEST. Best of all, Bellucci will star as the sexy manager of a strip club. Cusack will star as Charlie Arglist, a lawyer turned thief who runs a bunch of strip clubs in Wichita, Kansas with partner Vic Cavanaugh (Thornton). Things get complicated from there and the rest of the film is a noirish comic thriller described as being in the vein of early Coen Bros work. The film was originally set up with Robert Benton (THE HUMAN STAIN) to direct but scheduling left him unavailable at which point Ramis became involved. The film is based on the novel of the same name by Scott Phillips, with a script by Benton and partner Richard Russo. Thornton recently wrapped filming on FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS for director Peter Berg (THE RUNDOWN) and Bellucci finished work on THE BROTHERS GRIMM with Matt Damon and Heath Ledger late last year. Ramis hasn't directed since the poorly received ANALYZE THAT in 2002.
