D.P. catches helming bug for ‘Mimic 2’

De Segonzac to make feature-directing debut

“Homicide” and “Oz” cinematographer Jean de Segonzac will make his feature-directing debut with “Mimic 2,” the sequel to the 1997 horror film that starred Mira Sorvino and Jeremy Northam. Production is slated to begin in late May in Los Angeles.

Budgeted under $10 million, “Mimic 2” was written by Joel Soisson (“Prophecy III”) and continues the story of overachieving insects that were genetically designed to wipe out cockroaches, but proceed to use their deadly forces of mimicry on mankind. The original “Mimic” was directed by Guillermo del Toro.

Alix Koromzay will star in the film. In the original, Koromzay portrayed Remy, sidekick to Dr. Susan Tyler (Sorvino). In the sequel, Remy takes the lead in the fight against the hostile arthropods.

In addition to his work shooting “Oz” and “Homicide,” de Segonzac directed “Homicide: The Movie” and episodes of “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” as well as “Homicide: Life on the Street.”

Repping de Segonzac in the deal were Paul Alan Smith and Jim Rosen at Broder Kurland Webb Uffner and attorney Jeffrey Frankel at Colden McKuin Frankel.

Koromzay is repped by Writers & Artists and managers Rich Silverman and Jeff Golenberg at 3 Arts Entertainment.
