Exclusive Films International (EFI) president Alex Walton will be talking to EFM buyers about company’s first pick-up using its new acquisition fund announced last month.
The Chumscrubber director Arie Posin’s The Look Of Love will be based on a screenplay Posin wrote with Matthew McDuffie about a widow who meets a mysterious man who resembles her late husband, sparking a flood of old feelings. Julie Lynn and Bonnie Curtis are producing. Exclusive worked recenty with Harris on Peter Weir’s The Way Back.
“This movie is about the hope that love can strike at any age, and that it’s possible to love deeply, lose terribly, and still love again,” Posin said. “This project will rely heavily on the humanity and honesty of its actors, and I cannot imagine two finer actors in the world than Diane and Ed to entrust with the telling of this story.”
“Arie Posin has the intellect and sensitivity to deliver tremendous romance and complexity with The Look Of Love,” Curtis and Lynn said in a joint statement. “Before making his first film, Arie spent years under the mentorship of the incomparable Billy Wilder – and that influence is apparent in every scene of this new project. We have a fierce belief in Arie, and we’re thrilled that Exclusive Films International sees exactly what we see.”
“We were immediately attracted to the highly emotional screenplay Arie has written,” Walton and EFI co-president Alex Brunner said. “Combined with the award-winning cast he has assembled The Look Of Love will surely affect cinema audiences worldwide.”
EFI’s EFM slate includes the George Clooney political drama The Ides Of March, The Woman In Black starring Daniel Radcliffe, Miley Cyrus action comedy So Undercover and Martin Scorsese’s Untitled George Harrison Documentary.
