Lead Producers on the project Neil Jones and Dean Mitchell will also be joined by Executive Producers Emma Tillinger Koskoff and Martin Scorsese.
Directing will be Scorsese’s long time Script Supervisor, Martha Pinson. This will be her feature film directorial debut, after directing a number of award winning shorts and off Broadway plays.
The film revolves around five main characters and is ‘an uplifting story, about living today and not waiting for tomorrow’. Set in modern day London, the film is anticipated to shoot later this year, as several location scouts have already taken place.
Casting is underway with announcements to be made soon.
Martha Pinson brings years of experience with her, working with some of the best directors around, including Sidney Lumet and Oliver Stone. The Producers first met Martha at the British Independent Film Festival in 2010, where she won an award for ‘Best New Screenplay’.
Producer Dean Mitchell states: “It’s an amazing script, with colourful characters and a truly uplifting story. The film deals with a number of important issues, including HIV and soldiers returning home with post-traumatic stress disorder and will be making an important statement in how it addresses these. With Martha at the helm, it’s going to be a beautiful picture.”Powered by Sidelines
