Greed is Good: Broad Street Pictures Makes “Equity” Stake in Meera Menon
Under their newly minted Broad Street Pictures label, Sarah Megan Thomas and Alysia Reiner will both star in and produce Equity, the sophomore feature from up-and-comer helmer Meera Menon. Variety reports that this first foray, billed as a female in power suits take of Wall Street, will begin lensing in New York and Philadelphia in July. After premiering at the 2013 TriBeCa Film Festival, Menon will see her feature, award-winning debut Farah Goes Bang receive its theatrical release next month.
Gist: Written by Amy Fox, this follows an investment banker who is threatened by a financial scandal and must untangle a web of corruption.
Worth Noting: Coming from a film background, Menon has worked as a curator for contemporary film and video art festivals in Paris, Miami, and New York.
Do We Care?: Among the buzz title items at TriBeCa Film Fest circa 2013, THR described her road movie debut as “re-energized with a gender switch and infusion of politics”.
