‘Beguine’ begins Meyers’ AFM slate

The Meyers Co., headed by Larry Meyers, has obtained international rights to three pics, which are scheduled for production this year and are being offered at the American Film Market.

“Begin the Beguine” is set for principal photography in the early fall with a $7.8 million budget. The drama stars Elijah Wood. The Erratic Entertainment production is written and directed by Raymond de Felitta (“Cafe Society”), and produced by Graham Ludlow and Sam Okun.

The drama “Diary of an American Family” stars Lesley Ann Warren, William McNamara, Sean Patrick Flanery, Natasha Gregson Wagner, Missy Crider and Scott Bakula. The film is written and directed by James Moll based on the story he wrote with Terry Parmer. Stephen J. Wolfe is producer with Warren. Filming starts in September in Texas with a $4.5 million budget.

“The Mythfits,” a fantasy about Marilyn Monroe and John F. Kennedy alive on a tropical island years after their supposed deaths, stars Ann-Margret, with Cliff Robertson in negotiations to play JFK.

Filming on the $4.5 million production starts in July off the coast of Florida. Steelworks Films’ Jim Steele (“The Arrival”) and Guy Hiuni are producing, with co-executive producers Roger Smith and Alan Margulies. Cyrus Nowrasteh directs the screenplay he penned with James Trivers, based on a Trivers story. Nowrasteh wrote the “La Femme Nikita” TV pilot and has two upcoming projects at Fox and Interscope.

Meyers founded his international distribution company during last year’s AFM. He was formerly senior VP for international sales at Lorimar, started and ran New World’s international division, and was most recently co-founder and president of Cinema Arts & Entertainment.
