Production begins on ensemble drama

Holly Wiersma (“Factory Girl,” “Bobby”) has launched production on ensemble drama “Rocket,” starring Tom Arnold, Illeana Douglas, Jimmy Fallon, Lucy Liu and Sharon Stone.

Wiersma’s producing via her shingle and Ring Prods., with Ed Machek and Lou Maggio exec producing.

Project, directed by Patrick Sisam and lensing in Jacksonville, Fla., centers on a 35-year-old man (Fallon) who finds that his problem committing to his girlfriend stems from his troubled relationship with his unhappily married father, portrayed by Arnold.

Sisam and Rick Velleu co-wrote the script, based on stories written by Ethan Canin (“Emperor of the Air,” “Carry Me Across the Water”).

Wiersma worked with Fallon and Douglas on “Factory Girl,” with Stone on “Bobby” and with Arnold on “Happy Endings.”
