Production on the BCDF Pictures project is scheduled to begin this month in New York. ICM and UTA packaged the film and represent North American rights.
Ron Nyswaner co-wrote the screenplay with newcomer Philip Dorling, who will direct the story of a piano prodigy with a troubled mother who enlists the help of a hapless drug dealer on the day of a prestigious audition.
Nyswaner will produce with Neda Armian, Peter Stering and BCDF’s Brice Dal Farra, Claude Dal Farra and Lauren Munsch. Paul Prokop of BCDF will executive produce.
ICM represents Eisenberg and Leo, and UTA represents Nyswanyer, Dorling and Morgan.
