Finnegan/Pinchuk to open NYC office

Film and television production outfit the Finnegan/Pinchuk Co. — with three active projects featuring talent like Goldie Hawn, Winona Ryder and Randy Travis — will open a Gotham branch in the first quarter of 1994.

Company founders Pat and Bill Finnegan will move to the new digs, while partner Sheldon Pinchuk remains in the Studio City office.

“Both offices will be involved in the development of projects for television and theatrical features,” Pinchuk said in a statement. A New York presence “will give us easier access to East Coast literary properties, the publishing world in general and a new pool of talented writers and directors.”

At the top of the F/P production list is the Jersey Films feature “Reality Bites,” which stars Ryder, Ethan Hawke and Ben Stiller, who also helms.

Also in the works is the NBC telepic “Treasure Island: The Adventure Begins,” a co-production with Las Vegas hotel mogul Steve Wynn. Anthony Zerbe leads the cast; Scott Garen helmed from a script written by James Hart and Jamie Klein.

Another F/P made-for, “Dead Man’s Revenge,” is revving up for MTE and USA Network, starring Bruce Dern, Michael Ironside and Randy Travis. “Dead,” a co-production with Charmaine Balian and helmed by Alan Levi, was written by Jim Byrnes and David Chisholm.

Hawn has ‘Hope’

When the three active projects have been completed, Hawn will direct Kerry Kennedy’s “Hope,” with Anthea Sylbert producing. This is Hawn’s directing debut.
