Athens, Greece (Vocus) October 10, 2007
"My Life in Ruins," the heavily anticipated comedy helmed by Donald Petrie, starring Nia Vardalos is shooting in Greece at the Acropolis October 13th. We will host a press conference Friday, October 12th in Athens Greece with Nia Vardalos, Donald Petrie and Alexis Georgoulis.
Set amongst the ruins of Ancient Greece, the story of "My Life in Ruins" is centered around Georgia, played by Nia Vardarlos. She leads an eclectic, disgruntled bunch of tourists in a run down tour bus through Greece. Her world is turned upside down by the arrival of the seemingly obnoxious Irv Gordon. Oscar winner Richard Dreyfuss is among the International cast which includes Rita Wilson, Rachel Dratch, Harland Williams, Ian Ogilvy, Caroline Goodall and the Brit comedic genius of Alistair McGowan.
Nathalie Marciano, Michelle Chydzik of 26 Films and Gary Goetzman of Playtone, are producing "My Life in Ruins"; Rita Wilson and Tom Hanks are Executive Producing; Kanzaman are the Spanish co-producers. The original "My Life in Ruins" screenplay was penned by Mike Reiss who wrote this summer's monster hit "THE SIMPSONS" with revisions by Nia Vardalos.
Foreign sales of "My Life in Ruins" are being handled through Echo Bridge Entertainment.
