Cataldo, Perry to produce pic

First Miracle Group has acquired the film rights to the bestseller “When Nietzsche Wept,” by Dr. Irvin D. Yalom.

First Miracle CEO Tony Cataldo and Academy Award and Golden Globe nominee Pincus Perry (“Gaby: A True Story”) will produce.

Set in 19th-century Vienna on the eve of the birth of psychoanalysis, story centers on an imagined relationship between an extraordinary patient and a gifted healer.

First Miracle is Wall Street vet Cataldo’s indie film company (Daily Variety, June 25) that has been signing pacts with stars and filmmakers in exchange for stakes in the firm.

Jean-Claude Van Damme’s Long Road Films has a first-look deal with First Miracle, as does Emmet/Furla Films.

First Miracle recently acquired Stanford Whitmore’s original screenplay, “Alicia’s Book,” which it plans to make with the $12.5 million in financing it acquired from Millennium Films.

Forthcoming from First Miracle is the Brooke Shields starrer “After Sex” and “Speedway Junky,” starring Darryl Hannah and Jonathan Taylor Thomas.
