Mark Urman’s Paladin has picked up David Guy Levy’s lo-fi drama A Love Affair of Sorts for distribution. The company plans a release in 2011.
Levy’s directorial debut, Affair follows a guy and a girl who meet in a bookstore when he catches her shoplifting on his ever-present Flip camera. As they start a tentative relationship he captures it all on his digital camera, though nothing about the situation is as straightforward as it seems.
Levy and Lili Bordan star as the couple, and Jonathan Beckerman and Ivan Kamaras also appear in the film.
“It is extremely exciting working with David, whose understanding of film as art form and enterprise is both inspired and inspiring,” said Urman, Paladin’s CEO. “Not only has he done something very modern and innovative with Love Affair — which we believe is the first-ever feature made entirely with the Flip Camera–he has also done something surprisingly sweet and classically romantic.”
Levy’s Periscope Entertainment produced the film, which Levy wrote and directed from a story he created with Bordan. Urman is an executive producer.
As a producer, Levy has Sexual Dependency, Lying, Taking Chances and August on his resume. He is producing the forthcoming indies Terri, starring John C. Reilly, and The Wait, starring Chloe Sevigny and Jena Malone, plus a remake of Monster Squad with Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes and an adaptation of the Martin Amis novel London Fields that Michael Winterbottom will direct.
Paladin has recently released Disgrace, The Loss of a Teardrop Diamond, The Greatest and Douchebag. Tom Shadyac’s I AM will open in February.
