Larchmont Boulevard paves way for 3 pix

Coppos shingle to roll out 'Leopard,' 'Vlad,' 'Merchants'

Larchmont Boulevard, recently spun off from boutique commercial producer Coppos Films, has announced a slate of three features.

Los Angeles-based shingle, headed by Coppos veterans Michael Appel and Bill Bratkowski, plans to create, produce and direct up to three films a year. “We’ve had a very good run as commercial producers, and we’ve been wanting to move into features for a long time,” Appel said.

Larchmont will start by producing “The Leopard,” a one-man, two-act play written by Yabo Yablonsky about the last two hours of Ernest Hemingway’s life in Ketchum, Idaho. James Earl Jones is considering the role, and Larchmont is seeking sponsors for the project, which would be shot in November in New York. Jones is repped by Richard Bauman & Associates.

Larchmont is setting up “Vlad,” an epic written by Yablonsky and based on the novel “Dracula, Prince of Many Faces” by Radu Florescu and Raymond McNally.

Company is also planning to make “Little Merchants,” based on a true story set in the 1940s about street kids in a Mexican border town taking on the head of the local mafia. Sally J. Champlin’s script is based on a soon-to-be-published book by J.T.S. Brown and Hank Azcona.
