CFP rolls ‘Vig’ with Holly, Falk, Hutton

NEW YORK — “Vig,” a drama scripted by playwright-turned- screenwriter Paul Hapenny for director Graham Theakston, has been greenlit with Lauren Holly, Peter Falk, Tim Hutton, Freddie Prinze Jr., Tyne Daly, Colm Meaney and Frank Vincent.

The film will be financed by Cinepix Film Properties and produced by S. Miguel Valenti and Michael Paseornek. Theakston’s directing credits include TV projects “The Mill on the Floss” and “The Politician’s Wife.”

In the drama, Holly plays an ex-stripper who’s married to a compulsive gambler (Hutton). Falk plays a bar owner.

Hapenny’s script got the scribe much attention when it was set up several years ago at Barwood, the production partnership between Barbra Streisand and Cis Corman. Barwood is still involved, with Corman serving as an executive producer with CFP’s Jeff Sackman, John Dunning, Andre Link and Erin Martin.

CFP is a production/distribution operation that financed “Buffalo 66,” an upcoming film starring Christina Ricci and Anjelica Huston. CFP is also working with Hapenny on another script, “Parole,” on which the scribe will make his directorial debut next spring.

For Holly, the film marks her second indie venture, after starring in the Ed Burns-directed “Long Time, Nothing New,” which Gramercy distributes in March 1998. CAA was pivotal in getting the film off the ground.

Holly was repped by CAA, Addis/Wechsler and attorney Debbie Kline. Falk was repped by manager Michael Black of MBM and attorney Michael Sherman. Hapenny is repped by CAA’s David Styne.
