Is Terry Gilliam Making a Film Short "The Wholly Family" in Italy?

Is Terry Gilliam going to be making a short film in the coming month? According to LoSpettacolo, the answer is yes. Gilliam is said to be shooting "The Wholly Family" in Naples, January 10-16, 2011. According to various news sources, it is a short fantasy film in English that tells the story of an American boy traveling in Naples with his parents "who were almost at their wit's end due to the behavior of their son (a true 'brat') until a meeting with a local person changed a lot." According to SegnalStreet90, Gilliam was in Rome on December 13th, secretly auditioning actors for the lead roles. Is any of this true? I guess we'll have to wait and see.
