Projects include Luke Perry-Armand Assante pic 'Fine Step'

Insomnia Media Group is moving forward with two new projects: "A Fine Step" and "Master's Tree."

Luke Perry and Armand Assante star in "Step," a drama about a champion horse rider injured in a car accident and the woman who takes over the training and riding of Fandango, his prized Paso Fino horse. The project, whose title might change, has begun principal photography in Memphis.

Jonathan Meyers is directing from a screenplay by Dennis Sonnenschein and Doc Suggs. Bret Saxon is producing with Insomnia's Ari Palitz. Jon Yarbrough Jr., Doug Ames, Ron Coleman and Justin Gullett executive produce.

Cylk Cozart ("16 Blocks"), Justin Baldoni ("Heroes"), Leonor Varela ("The Man in the Iron Mask") and Amy Lavere ("Black Snake Moan") co-star.

Perry is repped by Fortitude and Himber Entertainment. Assante is repped by Rebel Entertainment Partners and Omniquest Media.

Insomnia also has signed David Mickey Evans ("Sandlot") to direct the Christmas drama "Tree," written by Jim Walker and Tom Wiggin. The feature is set at Memphis' Palmer Home, a real-life charitable organization that provides a home to children who have lost their parents.

Evans is repped by Hughes Capital Entertainment.

Insomnia is in postproduction on the real-life-based drama "Minkow," written by Meyers and starring Mark Hamill, James Caan, Ving Rhames and Talia Shire.
