Zellweger ready for ‘Pillage’

Pic tells story of rebellious friends in search of the perfect party

Renee Zellweger is ready to party with “Pillage,” having acquired feature rights to former New York City nightlife impresario Brantly Martin’s novel of the same name.

Zellweger will produce “Pillage” with PalmStar Entertainment’s Kevin Frakes. John Krokidas (“Slo-Mo”), who penned the screenplay, will direct; shooting is scheduled to start during the first half of next year in New York City.

Newly minted PalmStar Media Capital will finance and handle worldwide sales.

“Pillage” centers on four best friends living in Manhattan who rebel against their dead-end lives by searching for the perfect party in the downtown nightlife scene.

Frakes established PalmStar Media Capital earlier this year — with PalmStar Entertainment, Peggy Taylor and Frank Pollifrone — to finance gap and equity investments in features.

PalmStar’s roster of projects includes “Lunar Park,” based on the Bret Easton Ellis novel and to be directed by Phil Alden Robinson; and “The Golden Suicides,” based on the Vanity Fair article about Jeremy Blake and Theresa Duncan.
