Kevin Kline and Maggie Smith will star in the Paris-set dramedy "My Old Lady," the feature directorial debut of Israel Horovitz, who adapted the film from his play. Protagonist Pictures will take the film to international buyers at Cannes next week.

In "My Old Lady," French-speaker Kevin Kline (last seen in "Darling Companion" and heard as a voice on Fox's animated series "Bob's Burgers") will play Mathias, a New Yorker who goes to Paris to deal with his estranged father's assets. But he finds old lady Mathilde (Maggie Smith of "Downton Abbey") living in dad's apartment with her daughter (Jane Birkin) and learns he must wait until she dies to gain possession of the apartment.

Horovitz's screenwriting credits include Istvan Szabo's "Sunshine" (1999), which won a European Film Award for best screenplay, and "The Strawberry Statement," winner of the 1970 Jury Prize at Cannes.

Principal photography for "My Old Lady" begins in Paris on September 9th.
