THE FAMILY (aka Malavita) is an upcoming off-beat action comedy film directed by Luc Besson (The Fifth Element, Léon: The Professional, The Lady), based on the novel Malavita (Badfellas for 2010 English translation) by Tonino Benacquista (The Beat That My Heart Skipped, Read My Lips). Starring Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, Tommy Lee Jones, and Dianna Agron, the film follows a mafia family under the witness protection program that want to change their lives.
A mafia boss and his family are relocated to a sleepy town in France under the witness protection program after snitching on the mob. Despite the best efforts of CIA Agent Stansfield (Jones) to keep them in line, Fred Manzoni (DeNiro), his wife Maggie (Pfeiffer) and their children, Belle (Agron) and Warren (D’Leo) can’t help but revert to old habits and blow their cover by handling their problems the “family” way, enabling their former mafia cronies to track them down.
