Rooney Frontman Robert Schwartzman Makes Helming Debut On ‘MF’

Deadline

Robert Schwartzman has just begun shooting his directorial debut, a film entitled MF. He’s mum on the logline, but his stars are Johnny Simmons, Amy Landecker, Frankie Shaw and Beverly D’Angelo. Schwartzman, who has fronted the L.A. band Rooney for more than 15 years, wrote the script with Benjamin Font. He’s producing with Mel Eslyn. His previous association with films was limited to composing original music for Palo Alto. He’s also done acting work in The Princess Diaries and The Virgin Suicides. And of course, he’s the son of the great Talia Shire of Rocky and The Godfather fame and part of the Coppola clan, so this directing thing was probably in the genes.

ICM Partners, which reps Schwartzman, packaged the film and will handle domestic rights.
