Mike Medavoy, chairman and CEO of Phoenix Pictures and co-founder of Orion Pictures, said, on the other hand, funding is drying up in the US. As a Shanghai-born Jew, he has managed to bring the Shanghai Film Group on board for his new production.
The Black Swan producer is currently working on an English-language feature film about how Chinese helped the Jewish people and their culture in Shanghai during World War II. Medavoy announced the partnership at the Shanghai International Film Festival in June. Screenwriter Nicholas Meyer, with whom Medavoy worked previously on the film Time and Again, will join him again.
