Fleck, Boden to open ‘Hate Mail’

Writing-directing team's next turns on relationship fallout of hate mail

Writing-directing team Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden, who became darlings of the indie scene following “Half Nelson” and “Sugar,” have set their next picture, a drama titled “Hate Mail.”

Project will be fully financed by Wayfare Entertainment, which previously produced Fleck and Boden’s adaptation of Ned Vizzini’s novel “It’s Kind of a Funny Story.”

“Hate Mail” will feature interweaving stories about several Manhattanites who encounter various iterations of hate mail and grapple with the subsequent fallout of their relationships.

Project reunites the filmmakers with a quartet of past collaborators, as Jamie Patricof will produce through his Hunting Lane Films banner, while Paul Mezey will produce via his Journeyman Pictures shingle. Wayfare’s Ben Browning and Jeremy Kipp Walker will also produce.

Mezey previously produced “Sugar” and exec produced “Half Nelson,” while Patricof produced both of those films.

Fleck and Boden came on Hollywood’s radar with their short film “Gowanus, Brooklyn,” which bowed at Sundance in 2004 before the duo expanded the story to feature-length with “Half Nelson.” The duo have multiple Indie Spirit Award nominations and Fleck was named one of Variety’s 10 Directors to Watch in 2006.

Fleck and Boden are repped by WME and Management 360.
