Academy Award-winner Diane Keaton and Academy Award-nominee Andy Garcia are reuniting after the box office hit Book Club for Academy Award-nominated writer / director Raymond De Felitta's (City Island, "Madoff," Two Family HouseArtist in Residence, it was announced today by Protagonist Pictures CEO Dave Bishop.  The Hunger Games franchise star Josh Hutcherson is also set to star in the highly anticipated comedy.

Lauren Versel, under her Lucky Monkey Pictures banner, (City Island, The Last Five Years), and Joe Pichirallo (The Secret Life of Bees, Lakeview Terrace) are producing.

 

When an eccentric female artist (Diane Keaton) in New York City is faced with eviction from her home of 40 years by a powerful developer (Andy Garcia) who wants to demolish her building, she forges two unlikely alliances; one with the developer's son, Max, (Josh Hutcherson), who was supposed to be in charge of her eviction but instead becomes her friend and advocate; and the other with an ambitious female TV reporter who creates a media event out of it.

 

Artist in Residence is a charming and heartwarming New York tale, where the protagonists fight for the heart and soul of the city they call home.

 

"We're excited to be back in person with buyers, to introduce them to this special film that led by such tremendous talent," said Protagonist Pictures Head of Sales, Janina Vilsmaier. "Raymond De Felitta has created a heart-warming story, at a time during which we're all in search of one, and we know our phenomenal cast will bring it to life in a way that truly resonates with audiences. Diane and Andy already showed us that they are dynamite together in Book Club, and the charming and talented Josh is the perfect addition to truly elevate the story to the highest level."

 

Diane Keaton won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her portrayal of an aspiring nightclub singer in Annie Hall and was nominated in the same category another three times: in Nancy Meyer's Something's Gotta Give, in Jerry Zak's Marvin's Room, and Warren Beatty's Reds. Recent feature credits include Finding DoryBook ClubPoms and the HBO limited series "The Young Pope."
