THR also reports that Maurice Kanbar (Hoodwinked producer) is gearing up for an indie with Daphne Zuniga called The Scene. Aside from reliving her days as Princess Vespa, Zuniga is producing and starring in the black comedy, which is adapted from Theresa Rebeck's (Gossip) play about the "Manhattan party circuit and entertainment industry."
While I wish this meant something of the Whit Stilman oeuvre, this is more modern. Zuniga will play a cynical talk show producer who meets a chameleon social-climber played by Heather Gordon. What happens after that, we'll have to wait and see. Amy Glazer is directing, and this should be a bit of an intimate affair since THR says that sets have been built IN Kanbar's home. Talk about cutting costs!
