Shingle’s the real deal

Rubin-helmed thriller 'Kiss' first on Duly's slate

NEW YORK — “Real Women Have Curves” producer Effie Brown has unveiled a spate of projects in development for her Los Angeles-based Duly Noted shingle.

First pic to head into production later this year will be “Cold Kiss.” Wendy Rubin-directed thriller, which follows a group of characters running for their lives over a Thanksgiving weekend, is backed by Germany’s Hettleman-Berger Film Fund.

Duly Noted has a first-look pact with HBO Films’ original programming unit.

Other upcoming projects to be produced by Brown include helmer Marco Orsini’s “American Way,” a coming-of-age story about a Puerto Rican boy living in 1970s Georgia; “Bobby Zero,” helmers Markus and Mason Canter’s satirical romantic comedy about a philosopher who loses his cult following and is forced to take a job in advertising; and director Silas Howard’s “Exactly Like You,” which follows a guy who seems to have it all but is hiding the secret that he was born a woman.

Additional projects on the Duly Noted slate include Robert O’Hara’s family reunion horror feature “My Place in the Horror”; Ben Berkowitz’s urban drama “Polish Bar,” about blacks and Jews co-existing in a Chicago neighborhood; and Tim Bui’s drama “Powder Blue,” about a group of Angelenos searching for human connections and faith.

Brown’s other credits include the HBO pics “Stranger Inside” and “Everyday People.” She also exec produced Meg Ryan-Mark Ruffalo vehicle “In the Cut.”
