LAPD Thriller ‘The Shave’ in the Works as a Movie

Route One Entertainment and Lost City will produce and finance LAPD thriller “The Shave” with Chris Columbus and Eleanor Columbus’ Maiden Voyage banner.

The Shave,” written by Thomas White and Miles Hubley, focuses on an LAPD officer who has been recently exonerated in the murder of a high school honor student. He visits the boy’s father at his barbershop to tell him his side of the story while receiving a straight razor shave.

Route One and Maiden Voyage teamed on Sian Heder’s “Tallulah,” starring Ellen Page and Allison Janney.

Producers on “The Shave” are Maiden Voyage’s Chris Columbus and Eleanor Columbus, Route One’s CEO Russell Levine, Lost City’s John Finemore and Mason Novick, and Michelle Knudsen from MXN Entertainment. Route One’s Chris Lytton is executive producing with Lost City’s James Hoppe.

Elizabeth Grave will serve as co-producer for Lost City with Sophia Dilley co-producing for Route One.

Columbus directed “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” and “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.” He formed Maiden Voyage Pictures in 2013 to produce independent films, which have included “Tallulah,” “Little Accidents” and “The Witch,” which won the best director award at Sundance for Robert Eggers.

Route One financed and produced Drake Doremus’ sci-fi love story “Equals,” starring Kristen Stewart and Nicholas Hoult, which premiered at the Venice Film Festival. Its first project was “A Walk in the Woods” and its upcoming slate includes “Secret in Their Eyes,” starring Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman and Chiwetel Ejiofor, and “The Free State of Jones,” starring Matthew McConaughey.

Lost City is the U.S. film production and financing company formed recently by John Finemore and James Hoppe with Australian investors.

White and Hubley are represented by WME, and attorney Jeffrey Frankel. Rob McEntegart of First Reel Media made the deal for Lost City and Route One.
