Steven R. Monroe signed on to direct A Noble Lie, a film that Los Angeles-based production/management company Little Studio Films has put on the development fast track. The film is being co-produced with screenwriter/producer A J Ferrara’s Magic City Pictures.
Monroe directed It Waits, released by Sony Worldwide, and among his other credits, he has directed five TV movies for the SyFy channel. In 2010 he completed the much-anticipated remake of the cult classic I Spit on Your Grave for Anchor Bay.
Alexia Melocchi and Alexandra Yacovlef, the partners of Little Studio Films, were recently profiled in Hollywood Greek Reporter and Video Age Magazine News. They have sold over 100 American movies for theatrical international distribution clients and their company Alexia International Pictures. Melocchi is founder and CEO of Little Studio Films with the mission of creating a bridge between the international film community and American talent. Little Studio Films has just completed production of Stealing Roses, starring John Heard (Too Big to Fail, Entourage, Home Alone).
Ferrara, whom Little Studio Films also manages as a writer, is a graduate of Hal Croasmun’s ScreenwritingU ProSeries and president of Magic City Pictures.
In A Noble Lie a 1950s-era Washington journalist investigates a dangerous trail of murder, greed, and politics that leads to a UFO conspiracy cover-up when she witnesses a meeting between the President of the United States and aliens.
Casting for A Noble Lie will begin in October 2011. The producers will be presenting the project to International Buyers at this year’s AFM.
