Richardson, son of the Ballymena-born film star, surprised movie insiders when he launched his own acting career using the surname of his late mother Natasha Richardson and not that of his father.
Neeson's Love Actually co-star Bill Nighy and Jack Lowden were initially set to star in Made in Italy, but they had to withdraw due to scheduling conflicts.
The film is due to commence production April 2019 in Italy.
