John Malkovich rejected by the Hotel Danieli in Venice because he does not have a green pass. The news is reported this morning by the ‘Gazzettino’, in an article in which it is said that the actor had been given the most beautiful suite, overlooking the San Marco Basin. But when the artist arrived in the lagoon for the two days of filming the TV series ‘Ripley’, inspired by the novels of Patricia Highsmith, faced with the request for control of the Hotel, it was discovered that he did not have the green pass and doors of the wonderful suite have closed. According to the Venetian newspaper, this also surprised the production that was not aware of the fact that the actor and director did not have the anti-Covid green pass and that he found accommodation for the star in a private home in record time. It is not the first hitch linked to Covid for the filming of the series, which began immediately after the Epiphany and continued in a slalom, between delays, tampons, illnesses, isolations and replacements in the technical cast. The series will bring back to the screens (after Anthony Minghella’s 1999 film, The Talent of Mr. Ripley, starring Matt Damon) the character of Tom Ripley, con man and murderer, who begins his ascent to the beautiful world with an unusual mission in Italy in the 1950s. This time played by Andrew Scott. Co-star Dakota Fanning, whose arrival on the set was delayed precisely because she tested positive at Covid. Filming began in autumn, after a long postponement due to the pandemic, and first stopped in Anzio, Naples and the Amalfi coast to land now in Venice, where they should last another month and involve the most evocative places in the city.
