IFC Films announced today that the company is acquiring North American rights to acclaimed author Stephen Elliott’s directorial debut CHERRY. The film stars Ashley Hinshaw, Dev Patel, Heather Graham, and James Franco. Produced by Jordan Kessler and Elizabeth Destro, in association with Enderby Entertainment, Elana Krausz, Gordon Bijelonic/Datari Turner Films, and Kink.com, CHERRY premiered earlier this year at the 2012 Berlin Film Festival. It will have its North American premiere on April 24th at the San Francisco International Film Festival.
CHERRY is about Angelina (Hinshaw), an 18-year-old girl on the verge of finishing high school. One morning her boyfriend (Jonny Weston) suggests she take naked pictures for money. She balks at first but then does the photo shoot, using the money to run-off with her best friend (Patel) to San Francisco. In San Francisco, while cocktailing in a strip club, Angelina meets Frances (Franco) a well-off lawyer who offers to introduce her to a different kind of world, a place full of expensive dresses and fancy parties. At the same time Angelina, using the moniker Cherry, has begun exploring the San Francisco porn industry under the direction of Margaret (Graham) a former performer turned adult film director.
CHERRY was shot in the San Francisco Armory, home of Kink.com. At 250,000 square feet, the armory is the largest adult film studio in the world. Elliott is a former sex worker and the author of seven books including The Adderall Diaries. The movie was written by Elliott and Lorelei Lee, a porn performer who is also a writer and lecturer at New York University.
CHERRY challenges assumptions about porn, sexuality, and success, and faces the difficult question of where you need to be in order to find yourself.
Cherry also stars James Franco, Dev Patel, Ashley Hinshaw and Lili Taylor.
A couple of stills from the film have now been added to the Gallery.
Update:Â Full HD screencaps from the trailer can now be found in the Gallery.
Author Stephen Elliott is set to direct James Franco in the indie drama “Cherry,” with Heather Graham, Dev Patel and indie stalwart Lili Taylor in negotiations to star.
Elliott — author of “The Adderall Diaries,” which Franco recently optioned — co-wrote the script with Lorelei Lee.
Liz Destro (“Explicit Ills”) is producing the pic, which follows a troubled 18-year-old who moves to San Francisco, where she enters the porn industry and becomes involved with a cocaine-addicted lawyer, to be played by Franco.
Graham will play a former porn star-turned-director who becomes mildly obsessed with the young starlet, who has yet to be cast. Taylor will play the teen’s alcoholic mother, while Patel (“Slumdog Millionaire”) will play the girl’s best friend who’s in love with her.
“Cherry” is scheduled to start production next month in San Francisco.
