Posey, Poupaud start shooting in Cassavetes' Broken English

2005-05-05

 

Production is set to begin in New York on May 8 on HD Net Films' romance Broken English starring Parker Posey and Melvil Poupaud, in association with Backup Films.

Japan's Phantom Films is co-producing the story based on a screenplay by John Cassavetes' daughter Zoe Cassavetes, who makes her feature directorial debut.

Posey plays a high-flying New Yorker who falls in love with a mysterious Frenchman (Poupaud) and follows him to Paris. Production will move to Paris after several weeks in New York. Gena Rowlands, Jeanne Moreau, Josh Hamilton and Drea DeMatteo round out the key cast.

Vox3's Andrew Fierberg is producing with HDNet Films co-presidents Jason Kliot and Joana Vicente. Todd Wagner and Mark Cuban of HD Net Films parent company 2929 Entertainment are serving as executive producers. "Zoe's script boasts several amazing roles for women and has attracted a stellar international cast," Kliot and Vicente said in a joint statement. "We're particularly excited to be making two films in a row that star Parker Posey." HDNet Films recently wrapped the Paris-based production of Hal Hartley's Fay Grim starring Posey.
