Padding his directing resume with a stellar pair of dramatic shorts in the Sundance preemed The Fort (2012) and Karaoke! (2013), Andrew Renzi’s feature debut Franny (a Sundance Writers’ Lab project) happens to have plenty of added value with Richard Gere in the lead, Simon Killer dp Joe Anderson and Martha Marcy May Marlene‘s composers Danny Bensi and Saunder Jurriaans on the technical side.
Gist: Gere will play a fun-loving, hedonistic philanthropist who works his way into the lives of a newlywed couple (Dakota Fanning, Theo James) to recapture the life he once had.
Release Date: Filming began around October, so this could technically be ready for Cannes, where Renzi premiered his work as a producer in Alistair Banks Griffin’s Two Gates of Sleep (2010).
