Breadmaker to bake ‘Sunday’

LA company will co-produce comedy drama

Los Angeles-based shingle Breadmaker Pictures will co-produce Taiwanese comedy-drama “Pinoy Sunday” with Taiwan’s Great Domain Films.

The movie marks the helming debut of Ho Wi Ding, director of “Respire,” which in 2005 won the Kodak Short Film and the Young Critics awards in Cannes.

“Sunday” is co-scripted by Ho with New York-based Ajay Balakrishnan. Story concerns two Filipino migrant workers living in Taiwan who find a sofa that changes their lives.

The film originally was budgeted at $800,000, but cost recently was slashed to $300,000 as plans to shoot on 35mm have been dropped in favor of HD. Scheduled to start production in mid-2008, “Sunday” will be lensed by Jake Pollock (“Do Over”).

Great Domain’s Jeff Wang, who recently delivered lesbian drama “Spider Lilies,” has committed to provide at least 20% of the budget.
