Berlin: Vera Farmiga Boards ‘Prima’ Comedy

Pic joins a busy Highland Film Group slate at Berlin’s EFM

Vera Farmiga is set to star in relationship comedy “Prima,” which was written by Evan Greenberg (“Sex Farce”), who will also direct.

“Prima” (aka “Dance of the Mirlitons”) turns on 12-year-old Jesse Urchin, who shocks everyone when she gets into to a posh dance school, forcing her mother to adapt to her daughter’s new milieu.

Producer Daniel Dubiecki (“Up in the Air,” “Juno”) and Lara Alameddine produce along with Canadian Screen Awards winning producer Karine Martin (“Moth Diaries,” “Maina”) under her Mediamax banner.

Highland Film Group (HFG) reps worldwide sales rights at the Berlin Festival’s European Film Market.

Clea DuVall, Sheryl Lee, Emily Alyn Lind and Ryan Bingham have joined the cast of contemporary romance “Your Right Mind,” which HFG title is also repping in Berlin.

“Mind” stars Katherine Heigl and Ben Barnes. Ami Canaan Mann directs from her own screenplay. Principal photography is currently under way in Utah.

Molly Hassell is producing with Canaan Mann and John Jencks. Jon Avnet, Rodrigo Garcia, Highland Film Group’s Arianne Fraser and Delphine Perrier, and Main Street Films’ Craig Chang are serving as executive producers.

The HFG slate also features Kelvin Tong’s new suspense- horror film “Email,” with Nikki Reed; Kevin Connolly’s “The Wright Girls,” starring Jessica Alba; and “Sanctuary,” from Spanish director Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego.

“The Wright Girls” and “Sanctuary” are both from Atlas Independent, the affiliate company of Charles Roven’s Atlas Entertainment.
