Gould, Sharon team to produce features

'Double Bang' L.A. co.'s first project

Norah Films’ producer Roee Sharon and writer/director Heywood Gould of Tolmitch Prods. have partnered to form Tolmitch/Norah Films to co-produce a slate of features budgeted under $10 million.

The Los Angeles-based company’s first project is an adaptation of Gould’s novel “Double Bang,” about an honest cop who reluctantly enters the world of corruption and murder when his partner is killed by a small-time mobster.

Gould is helming the $6 million pic, skedded to lense in New York City and Toronto this fall.

Other projects the company has in development include:

  • “Bait,” scripted by Gould, about an undercover policewoman and the man who is her assignment;

  • “You Must Know Everything,” about a Russian writer persecuted by Stalin;

  • “Mountain Talkers,” in which a secret weapon helps the U.S. Marines reconquer the Pacific Islands during WWII; and

  • “Infra Red,” about a slave ship lost in outer space.

The duo worked together on Disney’s Michael Keaton starrer “One Good Cop,” which Gould scripted and directed. Sharon served as second assistant director.

Gould’s other credits include the screenplay for Franklin J. Schaffner’s “The Boys From Brazil,” starring Laurence Olivier and Gregory Peck. He has adapted several of his own novels for the screen, including “Fort Apache, the Bronx,” starring Paul Newman, and “Cocktail,” with Tom Cruise.

Sharon currently is producing “The Virtuoso,” starring Keith Carradine, Mia Kirshner, Mercedes Ruehl, Judd Hirsch, Bronson Pinchot and Brian Dennehy. Domestic distribution for the pic, which has just completed shooting, has not yet been set.
