Foresight Unlimited has added two new Emmett/Furla productions to its slate: Courtney Hunt’s romantic comedy Rule #1 starring Reese Witherspoon and Baltasar Kormakur’s action comedy 2 Guns starring Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg.
Brian O’Shea of The Exchange will be helping to sell the projects here at EFM.
For Rule #1 Randall Emmett and George Furla are producing with Brad Epstein of Panther and Reese Witherspoon through her Type A Films. Witherspoon will star as a woman with OCD who takes in a young woman and her newborn baby.
2 Guns, a $90m project being financed with Universal (which will release in the US) starts shooting on June 1 in New Mexico and Louisiana. Producers are Emmett, Furla and Marc Platt.
Envision Entertainment’s Stepan Martirosyan and Remington Chase are executive producing both. Envision has a fund set up with Emmett/Furla.
2 Guns is based on Blake Masters screenplay, adapted from the Steven Grant graphic novel, about a DEA agent and an undercover intelligence officer who are investigating each other and are both being watched by the mob.
