Vera Farmiga to shoot ‘A Thousand Guns’

Actress to star in indie Western for Prominent Pictures

Vera Farmiga is set to star in indie Western “A Thousand Guns” for newly minted banner Prominent Pictures.

“Guns,” which centers on a preacher’s wife and her journey of revenge, is being directed by Spain’s Daniel Calparsoro and written by Russell Friedenberg.

Prominent Pictures, headed by industry vets Paull Cho and Heather Rae, recently signed a pact with Crescent Financial Partners. Crescent will acquire a minority equity stake for a minimum initial guaranteed commitment of $10 million to contribute towards a slate of features budgeted between $2 million and $10 million.

Rae produced “Frozen River,” starring Melissa Leo and Misty Upham, and was in Variety’s Ten Producers to Watch list least year.

“Our focus is on smart financing models for independent films by forging key strategic alliances with distributors, studios and agencies that address the best means of commercial success for each individual project we choose to produce,” Cho said.

Their projects include Sian Heder’s “Tallulah,” based on Heder’s short “Mother” about a neglectful Beverly Hills mom who hires a stranger to babysit her toddler. Rae and Cho are also in post-production on “Magic Valley,” starring Scott Glenn and Kyle Gallner in a cautionary tale set in a small Idaho fishing town.
