Italian director Paolo Sorrentino, who won an Oscar this year for "The Great Beauty," has worked with Hollywood actors before. Most notably, his misunderstood "This Must Be the Place" (2011) starred Sean Penn and Francis McDormand. Now, a year after debuting his "Great Beauty" in the Main Competition, Pathe Intl. will shop his next film, "Youth," at the Cannes market. And Sorrentino has lined up a top drawer Hollywood cast for the project.

Rachel Weisz, Harvey Keitel and Paul Dano will join the previously-cast Michael Caine in this already-anticipated drama. Here's what we know so far: "Youth" centers on Fred, a retired composer, and Mick, a still-kicking-it director, who take a leisurely sojourn in an elegant hotel in the Alps. While Mick hastily attempts to finish his last great film, Fred considers returning to music.

It's safe to say that Harvey Keitel and Michael Caine will play the protagonists of this English-language feature. As in "The Great Beauty" and "Il Divo" (2008), expect much nostalgia, smelling-of-the-roses and ravishing cinematic beauty.

Sorrentino will work with longterm producers Nicola Giuliano, Francesca Cima and Carlotta Calori. "Youth" is slated to begin production later this month. 

Watch our video interview with Paolo Sorrentino here, where he talks his career and the 2014 Academy Award winner for Best Foreign Language Film, "The Great Beauty."
