Meera Menon to Direct Female-Driven Wall Street Drama for Broad Street Pictures

Broad Street Pictures has tapped Meera Menon to direct its Wall Street drama “Equity” with shooting starting in New York and Philadelphia in July.

Touted as the first female-driven Wall Street film, “Equity” follows an investment banker who is threatened by a financial scandal and must untangle a web of corruption.

Menon’s directorial debut “Farah Goes Bang” premiered at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival, where she was awarded the inaugural Nora Ephron Prize for a groundbreaking female filmmaker.  She was recently  selected as a fellow at 20th Century Fox’s Global Directors initiative.

Broad Street was founded last year by “Orange Is the New Black” actress Alysia Reiner and “Backwards” actress Sarah Megan Thomas to produce films with strong female roles before and behind the camera.
