‘Frogs’ gigs pair of stars

NEW YORK — “Portrait of a Lady’s” Barbara Hershey and Robbie Coltrane of the BBC TV series “Cracker” are starring in Amos Poe’s “Frogs for Snakes,” an independent film being produced by the Shooting Gallery’s Larry Meistrich (“Sling Blade”) and Phyllis Kaufman.

Currently lensing in New York, “Frogs” is a neo-noir comic thriller centering on a motley crew of street thugs who harbor theatrical aspirations. Helmer Poe (“Alphabet City,” “Triple Bogey on a Par Five Hole”) wrote the screenplay for the pic, which will be distributed by the Shooting Gallery in 1998.

Rounding out the “Frogs” cast are Lisa Marie (“Mars Attacks!”), Debi Mazar (“GoodFellas”), Ian Hart (“Michael Collins”), Clarence Williams III, Harry Hamlin and John Leguizamo (“Romeo & Juliet”).

“Frogs” features a soundtrack that includes Patti Smith singing Sonny Boy Williamson’s “Fattening Frogs for Snakes.” Pic is scored by New York underground band Lazy Boy.
