Cohen options feature script

Pre-production targeted for 2012

Producer Martin Cohen has optioned Michael Ricigliano Jr.’s film script “Redemption” for his new banner, Motts9 Prods.

Cohen exited his position as prexy of post at Paramount late last year and prior to that was a post-production exec at DreamWorks. He’ll produce “Redemption” with partner Marc Vanocur.

Story follows a young Hollywood producer who hires a down-on-his-luck actor who was once a star for a low-budget, direct-to-DVD pic.

Cohen aims to start pre-production on “Redemption” in early 2012.

He is working as an independent producer on “The Hunger Games.” Ricigliano penned the short “Lily of Feast,” starring Paul Sorvino.

Cohen and Vanocur are also developing the feature “Fort Santa.”
