Andy Garcia, Julianna Margulies, Steven Strait, Emily Mortimer and Alan Arkin will star in Raymond De Felitta's dysfunctional family comedy, City Island.

Dominik Garcia-Lorido and Ezra Miller round out the key cast on the production, which began shooting this week in City Island, a fishing village in the Bronx where the story takes place.

De Felitta's original screenplay stars Garcia as a Bronx prison deputy who recognises a prisoner as his long lost son and tries to act as his guardian.

De Felitta's Medici Entertainment, Garcia's CineSon and Lauren Versel's Lucky Monkey Pictures are producing along with Zachary Matz.

Westend Films is handling international rights and Paradigm Motion Picture Finance Group packaged the film and will represent domestic rights.
