2013 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Daisy von Scherler Mayer’s Some Girl(s)

She debuted her directorial debut, Party Girl at the fest (Sundance ’95) and now three films later, Daisy von Scherler Mayer found herself in the right place at the right time, working from what is most likely the best source material of her career with the stage to screenplay drama from Sundance regular, Neil LaBute. Starring Kristen Bell, Jennifer Morrison, Zoe Kazan, Emily Watson, Adam Brody and Mía Maestro, filming on Some Girl(s) began in April and so this has been completed for several months now. Cinematographer Rachel Morrison (Any Day Now) and Production Designer’s Maya Sigel (Gun Hill Road) are part of the crew.

Gist: The film follows a man who revisits several of his scorned ex-girlfriends on the eve of his wedding. Watson plays Lindsay, a married woman with whom Brody’s character had an affair. Zoe Kazan, Jennifer Morrison and Mia Maestro play the main character’s other exes.

Production Co./Producers: Leeden Media’s Patty West and Chris Schwartz, Andrew Carlberg.
