There’s a new project for Leslie Bibb in the works! She has signed on to co-star in the feature film About My Father, with Sebastian Maniscalco and Robert De Niro. Leslie’s character is named Ellie, and she is Maniscalco’s character’s fiancée.
Inspired by Maniscalco’s own life and relationship with his dad, and the stand-up comedian co-wrote the screenplay with Austen Earl, which Laura Terruso is directing.
In the film, when Maniscalco tells his old-school Italian immigrant father Salvo (De Niro) that he is going to propose to his all-American girlfriend, Salvo insists on crashing a weekend with her tony parents. Though cultures clash and it seems that the two families have nothing in common, by the end of the weekend, they’ll be la famiglia.
