Lensing begins later this month in Sofia, Bulgaria, at Nu Boyana Film Center, owned by Nu Image. Producers are Boaz Davidson, Danny Lerner, Les Weldon, Lori McCreary (Freeman’s partner in Revelations Entertainment) and Randall Emmett; with First Look Holdings principals Avi Lerner, Henry Winterstern, Danny Dimbort and Trevor Short exec producing.

Mitchell’s credits include “Feast of Love,” “Melinda and Melinda” and “Finding Neverland.”
