Permut teams with Sunrise on ‘B.F.F.’

Film to start production in September

David Permut (“Youth in Revolt”) is teaming with Sunrise Prods. to produce indie teen comedy “B.F.F.,” with production due to start in September.

“B.F.F.,” written by the scripting team of Ali Rushfield and Jenni Konner, centers on two “best friends forever” who decide to break up and go their separate ways.

Producers are looking to attach a director. Permut’s VP of production Steve Longi will co-produce and the teams of Eric and Kim Tannenbaum, who originally had the project set up at Disney, will exec produce. Konner and Rushfield have extensive TV credits, most recently as exec producers on “In the Motherhood” and “Help Me Help You” for ABC.

Permut’s been active in raising independent financing for projects such as “Chippendales” with Tony Scott directing and acquiring feature rights to the book “Without A Badge.” He also has Sam Kinison biopic “Brother Sam” set up at HBO and is developing a John DeLorean biopic.

Sunrise recently produced and financed “Father of Invention” and recently acquired the underlying rights to “The Beautiful and The Damned,” the story of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s tumultous marriage.

Konner & Rushfield are repped by UTA.
