Thompson on Hollywood

Susanne Bier has picked her follow-up to the Oscar-winning In a Better World. She will shoot comedy All You Need Is Love with a Danish cast on the Amalfi coast in Italy in May, she told Italian newspaper La Repubblica: "It's a tender story with a much lighter atmosphere than my previous works: enough with conflicts."

Bier's usual backer, Zentropa, will produce with Italy's Teodora Film and Lionello Cerri's Lumiere as co-producers. Plans are to start shooting on Amalfi coast locations in May, confirmed a Teodora rep to Variety. Casting is under way.
