After collaborating on “Edison,” Emmett/Furla Films will produce writer-director David J. Burke’s next feature, “American Rain.”
A drama set in a South Florida fishing town, “American Rain” follows a young waitress as she overcomes the memory of her mother’s murder to find love with a pilot with a troubled past.
Randall Emmett and George Furla will produce.
Burke was an exec producer on “Law & Order: SVU,” and exec produced, wrote and directed “Wiseguy.” He just wrapped “Edison,” which stars Morgan Freeman, LL Cool J, Justin Timberlake and Kevin Spacey.
Emmett/Furla Films recently announced the first project on its recently reupped nonexclusive production finance agreement with Millennium Films, “The Contract,” which Bruce Beresford will direct.
