The story centers on a man stuck in a marriage to a shrew of a woman, whose life is upended when he falls in love with a prostitute. The man's wife and prostitute have not yet been cast at this time.
Terry Zwigoff is directing from a screenplay he co-wrote with Melissa Axlerod, who formerly served as the director's assistant on his 2003 comedy Bad Santa. Edward R. Pressman is producing, with Anthony Scaramucci and Jon Katz executive producing. Here's what Edward R. Pressman had to say about the project in a statement.
"When considering a project, I think it most important that the director and the film live in the same universe and Terry certainly achieves this with Lost Melody. I've always wanted to work with Terry and am excited to be teaming on a wonderful darkly-funny drama in the tradition of such classics as The Blue Angel and Sunset Boulevard."
No production schedule was given. Nicolas Cage recently lent his voice to The Croods, and will next be seen in The Frozen Ground. Terry Zwigoff's directorial credits include Ghost World, Bad Santa, and Art School Confidential.
