Carla Gugino has inked to join Peter Sarsgaard and Molly Parker in helmer Wayne Wang’s “Center of the World” for Artisan Entertainment.
Pic, produced by Wang and Peter Newman with Gotham-based Ira Deutchman and Greg Johnson exec producing, begins lensing in April in Los Angeles.
An erotic tale about love and sex, “Center of the World” will be shot on digital video and then blown up to 35mm for projection (Daily Variety, Jan. 20, 2000).
Pic was acquired in a negative pickup deal by Artisan, which will distribute domestically and sell foreign through Summit Entertainment.
Gugino, who has played Dr. Gina Simon on “Chicago Hope” since last year, has appeared in such pics as “Snake Eyes,” “Judas Kiss” and “Michael.”
She is repped by CAA, Molly Madden and 3 Arts Entertainment.
