Richard Gladstein has joined the producing team of Ira Deutchman and Dolly Hall on “54,” a Miramax film about Studio 54 co-founder Steve Rubell, according to sources close to Miramax.
Gladstein was one of the producers of “Reservoir Dogs” and “Pulp Fiction” among other films.
“54” is slated to begin shooting in New York and Canada Sept. 29 with Mike Myers and Neve Campbell attached to star in the pic, to be directed by Mark Christopher from his own script.
The film centers on the nightspot that became a symbol of ’70s, pre-AIDS decadence and celebrity worship. Rubell died in 1989.
The Miramax project is one of several disco-themed pics in the works. Whit Stillman is shooting “The Last Days of Disco” at Castle Rock, while “The People vs. Larry Flynt” scribes Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski are scripting a Village People biopic they hope to direct at TriStar.
