Rome's Panorama Films has partnered with Los Angeles-based Full Circle Entertainment to develop and produce English-language films in Europe and the US, the Italian company has announced.

Full Circle's Jolie Chain and Panorama co-directors Marco Valerio Pugini and Ute Leonhardt are in talks with local filmmakers Eduardo Winspeare (Sangue Vivo) and Enzo Monteleone (writer of Academy Award-winner Mediterraneo) for their first joint projects.

Panorama, founded 10 years ago as a production service company, has worked on projects such as Portrait Of A Lady, Midsummer Night's Dream with Michelle Pfeiffer, and the Naples-shot episodes of HBO's The Sopranos. The company also executive produced Alessandro D'Alatri's The Garden Of Eden and co-produced family drama Katja's Adventure.
