ThinkFilm reteams with 'Nelson' crew on 'Blue'


NEW YORK -- ThinkFilm is reteaming with “Half Nelson” producers Silverwood Films and Hunting Lane Films for Derek Cianfrance’s romantic drama “Blue Valentine.”

The feature, written by Cianfrance with Cami Delavigne and Joey Curtis, follows a couple whose relationship is jeopardized when they find themselves in different places in their lives. ThinkFilm will finance, distribute and handle international sales on the project.

Principal photography is slated to begin in February. Silverwood’s Lynette Howell and Hunting Lane’s Jamie Patricof and Alex Orlovsky will produce. Silverwood’s Doug Dey will executive produce.

ThinkFilm’s Mark Urman, Randy Manis and Ben Stambler negotiated the deal with Endeavor Independent.

“Nelson,” the previous collaboration between the producers and distributor, earned an Oscar nom for lead Ryan Gosling.
