Producer Mary Aloe and Sir Michael Caine on set in Savannah on Coup D’ Etat

Last night we wrapped Coup D’Etat! Our production was based on the incredible “black list” script comedy starring Sir Michael Caine, Katie Holmes, Odeya Rush, Jason Biggs and Seth Green. Written and directed by Lisa Addario and Joe Syracuse, it is the story of a young rebellious girl who writes a dictator in another country for a homework assignment. The dictator gets the letter while getting overthrown by his country and he ends up on her door step in America. At 83, Michael Caine is not only one of the most talented actors in the world, but a kind, eloquent – true English gentleman. Besides being a two time Oscar Winner, only he, along with Jack Nicholson, are the two actors that have been nominated for an Oscar every decade since they each started their careers.
