‘Holy Land’ Filmmaker Launches Production Company, Plans Al Qaeda Movie

Eitan Gorlin, producer 2001 Israeli movie “The Holy Land,” has formed film production company Detente613 with backing from Peter Chernoff and Reuven Kahane.

Detente613 is developing “The Shot That No One Heard,” centered on Al Qaeda’s lesser-known first attack on American soil. Israeli entrepreneur Ari Fruchter is exec producing.

Gorlin told Variety that the attack in “The Shot That No One Heard” is not the 1993 bombing at the World Trade Center but is related to it. “We’re being purposefully vague,” he added.

The new company will focus on independent films and aim at the Eastern European, Russian and Middle Eastern markets.

Gorlin, nominated for the “Someone to Watch Award” by the Independent Spirit Awards for “The Holy Land,” is also the co-author of “I Am Martin Eisenstadt.” Eisenstandt was a fake pundit who emerged during the 2008 presidential campaign.

“The Holy Land” also won the jury award at Slamdance.

Kahane is part of an investment group that made an unsuccessful bid for the Empire State Building last year.

Detente613’s first film, “Burbank Caviar,” is in pre-production for an October production start with Eve Pomerance (“As Good as Dead”) producing. Story centers on a feared Russian-Israeli oligarch, whose deportation from America sets in motion a spiraling chain of events.
