Cooper to helm ‘Juliet’ for NL

Columbia grad's short paves way to Industry

New Line Prods. president Michael DeLuca has picked up a pitch based on Sherri Cooper’s short “Juliet Finkelstein Does the Hamptons.”

The deal calls for Cooper, 26, to write and direct a feature about a twentysomething’s search for a husband during a summer in the Hamptons.

Industry Entertainment is attached to produce with Marc Evans, Margaret Riley and Nick Wechsler.

Cooper’s 16-minute short recently screened at the New York Comedy Film Festival.

Cooper described the title character as a woman who believes that finding love depends on being “manicured, pedicured, waxed, bleached and tweezed, but she learns to let that go.”

The project was brought to DeLuca by New Line creative execs Renee Witt and Cindy Guidry. A recent Columbia Film School graduate, Cooper was the recipient for two consecutive years of a student development award sponsored by New Line.

On behalf of New Line, negotiations were handled by Amy Gittleman, senior veepee of business and legal affairs.

Cooper is repped by Todd Feldman and Doug MacLaren of ICM and attorney David Weber at Bloom Hergott.
