BERLIN – Jennifer Aniston will star in Cake, the first movie in a five-movie $50 million linkup between Chinese TV producer Shenghua Entertainment and After Dark Films under the banner Cinelou Films, the U.S. company said.
The films will be produced by Courtney Solomon (An American Haunting, Transit, Dungeons & Dragons) and Cinelou is being repped by WME Global.
"Our goal is to find great material and great talent and let them do what they do best, and Shenghua has proven a great partner to make that happen," said Solomon.
"The formation of Cinelou Films DHJ, and this new venture with Shenghua is a unique pact which allows us to give great projects a chance to be made for the right reasons without many of the usual limitations put on indie films," he added.
The deal was put together by Solomon and South China Media, under a new production venture between Solomon and Mark Canton (300, 300: Rise of an Empire, Escape Plan).
Directed by Daniel Barnz, Cake was written by Patrick Tobin and features Aniston as a woman who becomes fascinated by the suicide of a member of her chronic pain support group.
Pascal Borno and Scott Karol's Conquistador Entertainment is handling sales of Cake at the EFM in Berlin.
"We very much want to be a bridge between Hollywood and the greater China market, and this investment is a key way of doing this," said Yu Wei-Chung, chairman of Shenghua Entertainment.
