VIF Int’l pays to play ‘White Jazz’

Potsdam co. to co-produce with Nolte's Kingsgate Films, Interlight

LONDON — German production fund VIF Intl. Films has boarded “White Jazz,” a $28 million follow-up to “L.A. Confidential.”

The Potsdam-based company will co-produce the film with Nick Nolte’s Kingsgate Films and L.A.-based production company Interlight. Nolte and John Cusack are set to star in the film, with Winona Ryder reportedly in discussions to join them.

Adapted from James Ellroy’s novel, “White Jazz” will be directed by Robert Richardson and produced by Nile Niami.

VIF has raised more than DM150 million ($67 million) from Germany’s equity market through four private film funds. Goal of the current fund is to raise $44 million-$67 million.

Other projects to receive backing include TV series “Myth Quest” and the films “Clue in the Fast Lane” from Sheri Elwood and Robert Ackerman’s “Almost Japanese.”
