LATEST NEWS – Winter 2021

 I’m working with producer Simon Brooks, Canyon Creek Films (“White Noise”), on a delightful family project about a 16 year old boy who gets to spend a day with John Lennon which changes both their lives forever.   IN MY LIFE is written by writer/ director Mark Rosman (“Time Toys”).  Attached are actors Kevin Pollak (“The Usual Suspects”), Tom Hughes (“Victoria”), Wyatt Oleff (“It”), Janeane Garolafo (“Ratatouille”) and we’re in talks with Grace Van Dien (“The Village”).  Production begins June 21st.

Film partner Anne Marie Gillen (“Under Suspicion”) and I have optioned DRAWING FROM MEMORY, a novel by Ronnie Berman about a 21-year old German man who, as part of a German organization, is asked to help out a feisty old female Holocaust survivor from the Bronx… it’s oil and water until their mutual interest leads to forgiveness and transformation.  The treatment/lookbook for the 4-Part limited series is written by Donna Jason. 

My film partner, Rob Deege, and I have teamed up with showrunner James Thorpe on a brilliant TV teen series pilot, WUNDERLAND, written by Christopher DeWan.  Rob and I are also working together with award-winning writer Mark L. Smith (“The Midnight Sky” “The Revenant”) on two projects, HARDCOURT a psychological thriller and THE HUNTERS, a wonderful family film.  

And just recently I’ve teamed up with Oklahoma based producer Mark Stansberry on a WWI film project, SCOUTS HONOR, about the boy scouts who served as spies during the war.
