FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Los Angeles, CA – April 2015
Director Gabriela Tagliavini to helm You Did It! Productions’ romantic comedy WEDLOCKED.
Independent production company You Did It! Productions (“YDIP”) has secured full financing for the romantic comedy WEDLOCKED, budgeted at $10 million, with an eye towards a summer of 2015 start of principal photography in Rome, Italy. They are currently going out to top tier talent to fill the key roles.
YDIP has signed award-winning director Gabriela Tagliavini, who is repped by Ramses Ishak and Michael Sheresky at UTA, to helm the project. Tagliavini's directing credits include five feature films. She helmed Disney’s hit comedy "Ladies' Night" that was the #1 the top grossing film in 2004 in Mexico, “Without Men” starring Eva Longoria and Christian Slater, and “Border Run” starring Sharon Stone with Billy Zane.
YDIP has also just attached Cinematographer Julio Macat, who has proven himself as an industry leading studio level Director of Photograhy - with over 40 feature films to his credit including being DP for BLENDED, PITCH PERFECT, HORRIBLE BOSSES 2 , WEDDING CRASHERS and THE WEDDING PLANNER
WEDLOCKED is about an overly detail-oriented bride who must experience her hilariously discombobulated destination wedding over and over again. The latest incarnation of the script was created by David Steinberg, who is repped by CAA. David penned the cult comedy “Slackers”, several films in the “American Pie” franchise, and most recently wrote for “The Simpsons”, for which he was nominated for a WGA Award.
“I am very excited to be producing this high concept project,” says Lee Ettinger of YDIP. “My partners and I have always believed that this project would appeal to a large audience and be very commercial. I am also thrilled to be working with Gabriela Tagliavini, who has laugh out loud comedic timing and always directs provocative and controversial movies.”
WEDLOCKED is being co-produced with American Films, Inc., the rights holder of the screenplay. Jane Berliner, former senior agent with CAA now with Authentic Management, will be coming onboard as an Executive Producer.
