NEW YORK — Lensing begins today in Bayonne, N.J., on the low-budget indie film “Six Ways to Sunday,” which will be produced by David Collins and Michael Naughton.
Based on Charles Perry’s 1962 novel “Portrait of a Young Man Drowning,” “Six Ways” is the story of a young man caught between responsibility for his homebound mother and attraction to an alluring, crippled beauty. The script was co-written by Marc Gerald and Adam Bernstein, who will helm. Bernstein previously directed Touchstone’s “It’s Pat.”
Norman Reedus, who will appear in Miramax Films’ “Mimic” with Mira Sorvino, leads an ensemble cast that in-cludes Deborah Harry (“Heavy,” “Copland”), Elina Lowensohn (“Nadja,” “Amateur”) and Peter Appel (“Big Night,” “Extreme Measures”). Reedus’ deal was negotiated by Ed Goldstone of Goldstone Management and the Gersh Agency’s Leslie Siebert. Lowensohn was handled by Linda Jacobs-Kalodner of Writers & Artists.
