Shoreline preps Kramer documentary

Film to focus on prolific filmmaker

Shoreline Entertainment will produce a feature-length documentary about producer-director Stanley Kramer in collaboration with his widow, Karen Sharpe Kramer, who’s exec producing.

Kramer’s films, which received a total of 85 Oscar nominations, include “High Noon,” “The Defiant Ones,” “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner” and “Judgment at Nuremberg.”

Shoreline topper Morris Ruskin is producing with his cousin Peggy Stern, who will also direct. Stern won an Oscar for animated short film for “The Moon and the Son: An Imagined Conversation.”

“As an independent film producer, it is an honor to help create this film about one of the first true independent filmmakers, whose work challenged audiences to reflect on such controversial topics as injustice, racism and abuse of power,” Ruskin said.

Shoreline will handle sales on the project. Ruskin’s in production on “Master Harold and the Boys,” based on Athol Fugard’s semiautobiographical play about South Africa during apartheid.
