EXCLUSIVE: Bonnie Curtis and Julie Lynn of Mockingbird Pictures are producing the rom-com and The Solution Entertainment Group will commence pre-sales at AFM.
Victor Levin, the Golden Globe winning TV writer and producer whose credits include Mad Men and Mad About You, will direct from his screenplay.
5 To 7 is scheduled to begin shooting in late February 2013 and takes place in New York where a struggling writer falls for the wife of a French diplomat.
The Solution Entertainment Group co-founders and partners Lisa Wilson and Myles Nestel will serve as co-executive producers on the project.
“Vic Levin’s script had us in tears – we’re just not sure if it’s from laughing or crying,” said Curtis and Lynn. “We’re excited about the grace and intelligence that he, Diane and Anton will bring to their interpretations of his beautiful story.”
“This is just a great script with a wonderful cast attached and filmmakers involved who have a fantastic track record,” said Wilson and Nestel. “It exactly matches our criteria of offering only the very best in independent filmmaking to our clients. The response to the project has been overwhelming.”
Curtis and Lynn of Mockingbird Pictures produced the Albert Nobbs, which earned three Oscar nominations. Curtis previously produced A.I. Artificial Intelligence and The Chumscrubber, among others, while Lynn’s credits include Mother And Child and The Jane Austen Book Club.
Lynn founded Mockingbird in 1999 and Curtis joined as full partner in 2011. They are currently in post on Arie Posin’s Look Of Love starring Annette Bening and Ed Harris.
Levin’s feature screenplay credits include Win A Date With Ted Hamilton! and Then She Found Me.
