The first trailer and image for writer/director John Turturro’s new film Fading Gigolo has landed online. Turturro also stars in the pic alongside Woody Allen as two cash-strapped best friends who decide to go into the gigolo business together. Allen acts as the pimp, setting up the many dates for Turturro’s character. Despite the semi-outlandish premise, the film looks to be a rather charming New York story with a swell acting turn from Allen. The pic has been added to the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival lineup, so we can expect first reactions to flow in next month.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer and to check out the first image. The film also stars Sharon Stone, Sofia Vergara, Vanessa Paradis, and Liev Schreiber.
Here’s a synopsis for Fading Gigolo:
Fioravante, at his friend Murray’s suggestion, enters into the world’s oldest profession, and ends up finding something he didn’t know he was looking for. Starring John Turturro, Woody Allen, Vanessa Paradis, Liev Schreiber, Sharon Stone and Sofia Vergara.
