Chaiken and Dungan Launch 72 Productions with Four Projects

Producers Jennifer Chaiken ("My Flesh and Blood") and Sebastian Dungan ("Transamerica") have launched their new Los Angeles based company, 72 Productions with a private equity fund dedicated to the "acquisition and development of feature film projects," the pair announced Wednesday. 72 Productions' current production slate includes "The Perfect Hour" written by Deborah Quinn and Derek Simonds, who will direct the drama based on the recent discovery of Edith Wharton's letters (produced in association with Ross Katz--"Lost in Translation"); "Venom," described as a "modern-day 'Rebel Without a Cause' based on the upcoming book by Chris Krovatin; "Minnow," a psychological horror film written by Josh Miller and Mark Fortin; and "420," a comedy written by Dungan and Jesse Knight about a 'screw-up' who misplaces his stash of pot meant for an anticipated annual smoke-fest. "Jen and I have known one another for years and realized that we always seem to be championing similar kinds of projects," commented Dungan in a statement. "We're both interested in working with filmmakers that have original voices that reach broad audiences." [Brian Brooks]
