Myriad falls for ‘Rain’

King to helm from her own script

TORONTO — Finance, production and sales shingle Myriad Pictures has flashed the greenlight for “Rain Falls,” a $9 million pic with Christian Slater, Amanda Peet, Patricia Arquette and Thomas Jane (“61*”) attached to star and Marlene King to helm from her own script.

Pic will begin lensing in late October in Los Angeles or Austin, Texas. Myriad is selling pic’s domestic rights at the Toronto Intl. Film Festival.

The UTA-repped King makes her directorial debut; she penned HBO’s “If These Walls Could Talk” and New Line’s “Now and Then.”

“Rain Falls” is a comedy set in suburbia, where couple swapping is fashionable. Sean Furst will produce, with Kirk D’Amico exec producing along with Lucas Foster and Philip von Alvensleben.

Myriad financed “Van Wilder, Party Liaison,” to be released by Artisan, and “People I Know,” starring Al Pacino and Kim Basinger, to be released by Miramax.
