Tulchin sets ‘Magic’ cast

MILAN — Irene Jacob, Rob Morrow and John Hurt will topline “Magic,” the first pic on a slate that producer Harris Tulchin is shopping around Mifed.

Pic, set in the former East Berlin, is about a violinist (Jacob) who joins a traveling magic show to escape the boredom of her life. Plot follows a love triangle between the violinist, a magician (Hurt) and a young West Berlin financier (Morrow).

Jark Garfein penned the script and will direct. Bill Katterjohn will also produce. Henry Jaglom and Tulchin are exec producers.

Jacob last starred in “Othello” for Castle Rock Entertainment. Other credits include “The Double Life of Veronique” and “Red.”

Morrow is a veteran of the TV skein “Northern Exposure” and has starred in “Quiz Show” and “Mother.”

Among Hurt’s numerous credits are “The Elephant Man,” “Midnight Express” and more recently “Love and Death on Long Island.”

Tulchin is also in Mifed for “Home Before Dark,” which was recently honored at the Hamptons Film Festival. Curb Entertainment is selling the pic, along with the Tulchin-produced “Souler Opposite.”

Tulchin said he also recently acquired the rights to a cult genre film from humorist Scott Dikkers called “Spaceman.” Pic is about a young boy abducted by aliens who is trained as a lethal mercenary. When he is sent back to Earth, he finds work in a grocery store, where the FBI pursues him. “Spaceman” stars David Ghilardi and Brian Stack.

Other pics Tulchin has in development include: “High Cotton” from writer/helmer O’Neal Compton; Boris Vian’s “I Spit on Your Graves”; “Dillinger in Paradise,” which has commitments from Maria Conchita Alonso and Angie Everhart; and “To Kill Charlie,” which has Armand Assante attached.

Tulchin currently has Barbara Kopple’s “Palme d’Or,” a docu on the Cannes Film Festival’s 50th anniversary, in production, as well as “Chicks … Man,” from writer/helmer Jeremy Wagener.
