Hedden helming ‘Hi-Life’

NEW YORK — Eric Stoltz, Campbell Scott and Rebecca DeMornay are starring in Roger Hedden’s feature directing debut “Hi-Life,” which Cinepix Film Properties is financing.

Hedden, who’s also writing “Hi-Life,” previously performed screenwriting chores on “Sleep With Me” and “Bodies, Rest & Motion.”

In “Hi-Life,” Stoltz plays a struggling actor who concocts a foolproof scheme to raise the money he owes his bookie, who is portrayed by Charles Durning.

Rounding out the cast in the romantic comedy currently lensing in Gotham are Katrin Cartlidge, Moira Kelly, Peter Riegert, Anne DeSalvo and Saundra Santiago.

Loyalty and showbiz

Joining Hedden as producer of “Hi-Life” is Erica Spellman-Silverman, who previously was an agent at ICM and William Morris. “We’ve assembled an amazing group of actors whose loyalty to us has been extraordinary,” said Spellman-Silverman. “Loyalty and show business are not always synonymous, but in this case, they are.”

Executive producers of “Hi-Life” are CFP’s head of production Mike Paseornek, CFP exec veepee Jeff Sackman and Steven Beer, partner in the New York entertainment law firm Rudolph & Beer.

CFP is an independent film company with offices in Toronto and New York. It produces and distributes more than 20 films annually, including Sundance special jury prize-winner “Sick: The Life and Death of Bob Flanagan, Supermasochist,” Peter Greenaway’s “The Pillow Book” and Greg Mottola’s “The Daytrippers.” Its 1998 slate includes “Love and Death on Long Island” and “Junk Mail.”
