Heather Graham, Kim Basinger, Jason Patric In Talks To Join Fortune
Fortune smiles upon a handful of actors who appear to be joining director Clark Johnson’s dark indie comedy, Fortune.
Kim Basinger, Heather Graham, Catherine O'Hara and Jason Patric are in “final negotiations,” according to Variety, to headline Johnson’s Las Vegas-set film, which finds a small-time thief and two broke sisters whose fates collide in the superficial gambling Mecca. Fortune will work off of a screenplay by Nancy Fichman and Jennifer Hoppe. Production reportedly will begin later this summer in Canada.
Attaching Johnson seems to suggest that Fortune will have more action than conversation. A longtime character actor (who was so brilliant on The Wire), Johnson helmed two feature films in S.W.A.T. and The Sentinel, as well as multiple episodes of crime-based television series as The Shield, NYPD Blue and Homicide: Life on the Street. Will he bring those sensibilities to Fortune, or will this be a departure to different territories for a filmmaker who has shown he has the talent to tell virtually any story?
