Courtney Cox Arquette Goes Indie In "November"
by Christopher Henderson
"Friend" Courtney Cox Arquette will front InDigEnt's next production, "November." Cox, best known by film audiences for her "Scream" roles and last seen alongside Vincent Gallo in "Get Well Soon," stars as an L.A. photographer whose life falls apart after her boyfriend is killed in a convenience-store robbery.
Greg Harrison (2000 Sundance attendee and Independent Spirit award winner for "Groove") will direct the company's 10th feature. InDigEnt's Gary Winick and Jake Abraham will share producing credits with "Groove" producer Danielle Renfew on "November." Shooting is slated to begin in May.
InDigEnt is a partnership between IFC Productions, filmmaker Gary Winick, and Cinetic Media's John Sloss. The group's previous low-budget DV features include "Personal Velocity" and "Tadpole," as well as the 2003 Sundance hit "Pieces of April."
"'November' is exactly the kind of sharp and invigorating material that has made InDigEnt what it is," said Sloss in a prepared statement. "We are happy to add this project to our line-up."
Harrison and Renfrew's Map Point Pictures is also developing Garry Trudeau's "**E.T.C.," a satire which Harrison will direct for Killer Films and Fox Searchlight; and "Minor Characters," which Renfrew will direct with Harrison and the Weitz Brothers producing.
