Writer/helmer Julie Davis will follow her Sundance hit “I Love You, Don’t Touch Me!” with the black comedy “Oral Agreement” for Dream Entertainment.
The indie pic will be financed and distribbed by Dream under chairman and CEO Ehud Bleiberg and prexy Yitzhak Ginsberg.
“I Love You, Don’t Touch Me!,” which was made for only $60,000, was distributed by Goldwyn Films through MGM.
“Oral Agreement” is about a famous Hollywood actress who becomes the target of a tabloid frenzy gossip war. As her career skyrockets, she is forced to solve the murders happening around her before she becomes a suspect or a victim. Pic is expected to shoot this summer in L.A.
Davis, 27, will write and direct the piece.
Davis’s deal was brokered by ICM agent Kristin Jones and attorney Jeremy Barber of Loeb&Loeb.
Pic is one of a slate that Dream is taking to the Cannes Film Festival to sell overseas. Other titles include “My Brother Jack,” “Strong Island Boys,” “More Dogs than Bones,” “The Pass,” “Lover Girl” and “Sparkler.”
“My Brother Jack” stars Italian thesp Leonardi as a drug-addicted young magician whose working-class family is drawn together by a tragedy. Anthony Caldarella wrote, directed and produced the pic, which is based on Caldarella’s own story in the 1960s.
“Strong Island Boys” is written and helmed by Marck Schiffer about his own horrific experience when he was viciously beaten in a random attack while visiting his family on Long Island during spring break.
