Julie Lynn (Nine Lives, The Jane Austen Book Club) and Bonnie Curtis (Minority Report, Saving Private Ryan) are producing.
From a script by Posin and Matthew McDuffie, Look of Lovetells the story of a widow who, several years after the death of her husband, mysteriously meets a man who looks exactly like her deceased husband.
Lynn and Curtis said the years Posin spent being mentored by Billy Wilder are apparent in the film, a complex love story filled with humor and surprise.
“This movie is about the hope that love can strike at any age, and that it’s possible to love deeply, lose terribly, and still love again. This project will rely heavily on the humanity and honesty of its actors, and I cannot imagine two finer actors in the world than Diane and Ed to entrust with the telling of this story,” said Posin, whose previous credits include The Chumscrubber.
Exclusive Films International, led by Alex Walton, is a division of Nigel Sinclair and Guy East’s Exclusive Media Group.
Look of Love is the first project that EFI has acquired since launching its film pickup fund last month. Fund allows EFI to pay guarantees of up to $20 million per film, with an eye toward picking up two to four films per year. In exchange, Walton’s group gets international rights in all, or some, territories.
Other Exclusive titles being sold in Berlin include James Watkins’ The Woman in Black, starring Daniel Radcliffe; George Clooney’s The Ides of March, based on the award-winning play by Beau Willimon and starring Clooney, Ryan Gosling, Paul Giamatti, Marisa Tomei and Evan Rachel Wood; Tom Vaughan’s action comedy So Undercover, starring Miley Cyrus; and Martin Scorsese’s Untitled George Harrison Documentary.
