Jennifer Beals is set to topline and produce the indie jazz pic “The Lord of Vinyl,” which will mark the directorial debut of Dennis Bartok, who wrote the script and will also produce with Patrick Cunningham (“Martha Marcy May Marlene”).
Pic follows the bittersweet life and comic despair of a lonely 40-something Angeleno who’s obsessed with jazz and hides from the disappointment of the world inside the beauty of music. He unexpectedly finds himself exploring the possibility of new love with an unhappily married post office worker (Beals) just as he attempts a reconciliation with his estranged 11-year old daughter, now living with his ex-wife and former best friend.
Andrew W Marlowe, creator of the tv series Castle, tells TVGuide about Jennifer Beals’ character Sophia: “I always knew that she was going to be the bad guy and we were going to kill her in the end. But I also know that in any sort of CIA-inspired story, nobody is ever really dead for certain, I like to have my cake and eat it too. It’s all depending on where our storytelling takes us and assuming that Jennifer had a good time and wants to come back and play with us.”
Jennifer attended on Friday evening the 5th Annual Women In Film Pre-Oscar Cocktail Party co hosted by Gwyneth Paltrow alongside Women in Film President Cathy Schulman at Cecconi’s in West Hollywood.
Other stars attending were Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, Blythe Danner, Ari Graynor, Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens and more.
