Sarah Jessica Parker to star in ‘Mixtape’

Indie coming-of-age drama was on the 2009 Black List

Sarah Jessica Parker is on board to star in indie coming-of-age comedy “Mixtape,” to be directed by Tom Vaughan.

Jim Wedaa Productions and Maven Pictures’ Trudie Styler and Celine Rattray will produce the movie, with Maven and Mark Manuel’s Sandstone Entertainment financing the project.

The movie is set to start production in February in New York.

Story centers on a 12-year-old girl, raised by her aunt, who never knew her mother. She finds a mixtape that once belonged to her mom and accidentally destroys it, so she sets out to track down each of the obscure songs listed on the cassette.

Vaughan’s credits include “What Happens in Vegas” and “Starter for 10.”

“Mixtape,” written by Stacey Menear, won the American Zoetrope screenwriting contest in 2009 and it appeared on the Black List that same year.

Aldamisa International is selling international rights to the film at the American Film Market.

Maven’s first feature film, “Imogene,” starring Kristen Wiig, Annette Bening, Matt Dillon, and Darren Criss, premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and sold to Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions.
