Anonymous, Levy partner for pics and TV

'The Key' is among projects duo are developing

David Kanter and Jeff Okin of Anonymous Content have formed a feature and TV development pact with multi-hyphenate Jefery Levy under which Anonymous will work with Levy non-exclusively via his newly-launched shingle XMarksTheEarth.

Projects under the partnership include the film “The Key,” based on the 1956 Japanese novel by Nobel laureate Junichiro Tanizaki, in which a professor arranges for his wife to commit adultery with the aim of boosting his own sexual desires.

XMarksTheEarth is fully-funded to produce a slate of three films a year for the next five years, budgeted at approximately $3 million per film, and has already developed almost two dozen original screenplays along with adaptations of books by Jay McInerney. The partnership is developing TV shows based on Katie Arnoldi’s novels “Point Dume” and “The Wentworths.”

Levy, co-screenwriter of “The Ghoulies,” has been involved as a producer and director on films at the start of careers of stars including Heath Ledger and Vera Farmiga (“Roar”), Reese Witherspoon, Stephen Dorff, and Tobey Maguire (“S.F.W.”) and Anne Hathaway and Jesse Eisenberg (“Get Real”).

Anonymous Content is readying for the release of Focus’s “Seeking a Friend for the End of the World” and Par’s “Fun Size.” The company has recently completed production on “Loft” and “U Want Me 2 Kill Him?”

Levy is repped by Michael Adler of Lichter, Grossman, Nichols, Adler and Feldman.
