Zero Gravity management division bows

Kramer to make directorial debut with 'Luck'

Michael Pierce and Mark Williams’ Pierce/Williams Entertainment has launched management division Zero Gravity.

Clients include writer-director Wayne Kramer, who will make his directorial debut with “Luck Be a Lady” for Ed Pressman and John Schmidt’s new production and distribution shingle, Content Film.

Penned by Kramer, pic is a drama of an indebted gambler who’s hired by a casino to act as a “cooler” — someone who distracts winning high rollers from their game.

Set for a first-quarter 2002 production start, the picture will be produced by Pierce and Sean Furst (“Everything Put Together”). Content’s Alessandro Camon and Sofia Sondervan will supervise for Content.

Pierce/Williams also is producing Columbia Pictures’ “Hit the Misses” with Konrad Pictures and “Get It On” for MGM with Zide/Perry Entertainment.

Pierce received his law degree from the U. of London, while Williams earned a master’s in film production from the U. of Miami.

Pierce/Williams also is affiliated with London recording studio Pierce Entertainment, a 72-track facility linked to the Apollo Hammersmith venue.

Kramer, who also penned the upcoming Renny Harlin pic “Mindhunters” for Intermedia, is additionally repped by CAA. Furst is repped by the William Morris Agency.
