Michel Piccoli in "We Have a Pope"
With all the papal craziness right now, it's no surprise that Sundance Selects is rebooking Nanni Moretti's 2011 competition Cannes entry "We Have a Pope" ("Habemus Papam") in a theater near you. "Recent world events made it irresistible for us to bring back 'We Have a Pope,'" said President of Sundance Selects/IFC Films Jonathan Sehring, "which mirrors what much of the discussion on the world stage has been over the last few weeks."

 In "We Have a Pope" the newly elected Pope (Michel Piccoli) suffers a panic attack just as he is due to appear on St Peter's balcony to greet the faithful. His advisors seek help from an atheist shrink played by Moretti. My interview with Moretti is here.

The run begins next Wednesday at New York's Lincoln Plaza Cinemas, and nationally on multiple digital platforms including iTunes, Amazon, Xbox, GooglePlay, Sony Play Station and SundanceNOW. Moretti produced the film with Domenico Procacci and co-wrote the film with Francesco Piccolo and Federica Pontremoli.
