Shooting is under way in Tuscany on "My West," a Western featuring Italian star Leonardo Pieraccioni alongside Harvey Keitel, David Bowie and Sandrine Holt. Pieraccioni plays the town's pacifist medic, who's married to an American Indian woman played by Holt. Keitel plays the doctor's father, a gunslinger returning after a 20-year absence. Bowie is cast as a pistolero. A throwback to the spaghetti Western days of Sergio Leone, "My West" will be filmed in Garfagnana, whose landscapes look little like the green hills of Tuscany seen in most films set in the region. . . . Sources say "Saturday Night Live" trouper Molly Shannon has joined Robert De Niro and Billy Crystal in the cast of Warner Brothers' mobster comedy "Analyze This." Harold Ramis is directing the picture about a mob boss who undergoes psychiatric therapy. Shooting is to start this week in New York. Shannon's big-screen debut comes this summer with a starring role in Paramount's "A Night at the Roxbury" opposite fellow "SNL" cast members Chris Kattan and Will Ferrell.
