Lux Pictures and indie helmer Michael Oblowitz (“This World, Then the Fireworks”) are gearing up for their next project, “Flying With One Wing.”
Actor-turned-scribe Lawrence Monoson also stars alongside an ensemble cast that includes Rosanna Arquette, Jonathan Silverman, Daphne Zuniga, Ann Magnuson, David Faustino and Beth Broderick.
Lux’s James Magowan and Martin Kistler will serve as producers along with Robert Leveen (“Permanent Midnight”) and Monoson.
Set in L.A., “Wing” focuses on an actor caught in Hollywood’s viselike grip and struggling with personal demons. Story tracks his ultimate redemption as he finds himself first falling apart, then regrouping. Lensing is skedded to start in the spring.
Oblowitz, who directed 1997’s “This World,” starring Billy Zane and Gina Gershon, is currently working on the road movie “On the Borderline,” starring Eric Mabius (“Cruel Intentions”), Elizabeth Pena (“Rush Hour”) and Marley Shelton (“The Bachelor”). Kevin R. Frech’s Texas-set script deals with thorny issues of immigration. WIN Entertainment’s Gerry Gershman and Larry Gershman are producing. WIN is also in development with Oblowitz on “Invisible City” from scribe Larry Gross (“48 HRS.”).
Lux, which produced 1995’s “Flesh Suitcase,” also operates a commercial production arm under which it reps Oblowitz, who has helmed spots for Bell Atlantic, Ford and Speedo. The director is repped by Lucy Stilla of Paradigm, attorney Craig Emmanuel and manager Dave Fleming.
Separately, multihyphenate Monoson has landed a guest-starring role on NBC’s “ER,” playing a character who becomes intimately involved with Alex Kingston’s character, Dr. Corday.
Monoson is repped by Scott Wilson of the Paul Kohner Agency and Lauren/Green Management.
