Donahue will meet ‘Match’

Pic a Gen X 'Big Chill'

Heather Donahue has been cast in the ensemble film “Seven and a Match,” to be helmed by first-timer Derek Simonds based on his script.

Pic will be produced by Lisa Tornell and Stacy Kramer of Film Kitchen in conjunction with Gotham-based Tribe Pictures; lensing will begin on Nov. 10 on Fisher Island, N.Y.

Said to be a Gen X “Big Chill,” story concerns a group of high-powered upper-crust twentysomethings who spend a weekend together in a house on Fisher Island.

The cast includes Ian Bailey, Tina Holmes, Adam Scott, Scott Openshaw and Daniel Sarafini.

Donahue, who is also shooting Miramax/Dimension’s “Boys and Girls” in San Francisco, will simultaneously do “Seven and a Match.”

“I have very much been choosing roles that have nothing in common with the part I had in ‘Blair Witch,’ ” Donahue said. “It’s nice to have the opportunity to be part of this project, which will be a uniquely collaborative process because many of us come from theater backgrounds.”

Donahue’s deal was negotiated by her agent, Ben Press of Paradigm, and attorney Stuart Rosenthal of Bloom, Hergott, Cook, Diemer & Klein.
