Number 9 promotes Lawrence

Schnabel, Arteta pics head slate

CANNES — Stephen Woolley and Elizabeth Karlsen’s Number 9 Films has promoted Kate Lawrence to head of development, as it gears up a slate of projects by director’s including Julian Schnabel and Miguel Arteta.

The London-based company, which has Anand Tucker’s “And When Did You Last See Your Father?” screening in the market and Bob Weide’s “How to Lose Friends and Alienate People” pre-selling to shoot in June, is also in pre-production with “Son of Eurovision,” a feature doc about the junior Euro songfest, directed by Jamie Johnson.

Lawrence joined Number 9 as an assistant in 2003, and has served as a development exec since 2004.

Schnabel, whose “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly” premieres in Cannes, is attached to an adaptation of classic kids’ book “The Lonely Doll.”

The company is also developing “The Sound of No Hands Clapping,” Toby Young’s sequel to “How to Lose Friends,” about his foray into the world of Hollywood screenwriting (including, in a somewhat incestuous circle, his experiences of turning “How to Lose Friends” into a movie).

Arteta is developing “Together” with Fox Searchlight, a conceptual remake set in L.A. of Lukas Moodysson’s Swedish comedy about family life on a commune.

Ian Fitzgibbon is set to direct Irish drama “Perrier’s Bounty,” written by Mark O’Rowe (“Intermission”) and co-produced with Parallel Films.

Billy Ivory is scripting “We Want Sex,” a social comedy about the Dagenham Ford machinists strike in 1968 that paved the way for women’s equal pay.

Guy Hibbert is writing “Milk of the Revolution,” a satire about Fidel Castro’s search for the ultimate milk-producing cow in 1960s Cuba.
