Metalwork Pictures and Paris Film, Inc. Tap Nick Cassavetes to direct HAVE YOU SEEN HER?

Metalwork Pictures and Paris Film, Inc. announced today that acclaimed filmmaker, Nick Cassavetes (The Notebook, The Other Woman, My Sister’s Keeper) has signed on to helm Have You Seen Her?, based on the script he is co-writing with Paul Johansson (One Tree Hill, The Notebook and TV’s Van Helsing). Andrew Levitas will produce for Metalwork Pictures, with his Rogue Black label financing. Rob Paris will produce under his Paris Film, Inc. banner alongside co-writer Paul Johansson. Start of principal photography is scheduled for early 2018.

Have You Seen Her? is an international romance in the vein of Cassavetes’ iconic hit The Notebook, which launched the careers of Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams. The story is an original idea that Cassavetes has been passionate about writing and directing for more than a decade.

Paul Johansson said: “Nick and I have literally been on the verge of writing this for years. We’re incredibly excited to be partnering with Rob and Andrew who have put us on a very fast path to production.”

“The minute I heard Nick and Paul’s pitch, I knew I had to do whatever I could to help them get it made,” said Paris. “It’s sexy and smart, with an exotic, dreamlike setting perfectly suited for an immersive cinematic experience.”

Cassavetes’ credits include The Notebook, John Q, Alpha Dog, My Sister’s Keeper and The Other Woman.

Johansson is best known for playing Dan Scott on One Tree Hill, and has also appeared in Cassavetes’ The Notebook, John Q and Alpha Dog. Johansson is currently in pre-production on psychological horror Sacrifice, which he is directing.

SLEEPWALKER is the latest film from director Elliott Lester. Troubled by bouts of sleepwalking and disturbing nightmares, graduate student Sarah Foster goes to her university's sleep research center for help. When she wakes up after her first night of being monitored, the world she lives in seems to have changed in subtle, Twilight-Zone-esque ways. In fact, every time she goes to sleep now, she wakes up in a slightly different version of her world. With the help of sleep researcher Dr. Scott White, she tries to work her way back to the reality she started in.
