THE RULES OF ATTRACTION
GREG SHAPIRO (Producer) is a partner in Kingsgate with Nick Nolte. The
first production for the company was Affliction from the novel by Russell Banks,
adapted and directed by Paul Schrader. The film starred Nick Nolte, James
Coburn, Sissy Spacek and Willem Dafoe, and received two Academy Award
nominations for Nick Nolte and James CoBurn, who won Best Supporting Actor.
Following Affliction, the company
produced Simpatico, based on the play by Sam Shepard. The film starred Nolte,
Sharon Stone, Jeff Bridges, Catherine Keener and Albert Finney, and was directed
by Matthew Warchus, the acclaimed theatre director of Art and True West.
Kingsgate also recently produced
Investigating Sex, directed by Alan Rudolph and shot entirely on location in
Berlin, Germany. The film stars Alan Cumming, Dermot Mulroney, Julie Delpy,
Jeremy Davies, Robin Tunney, Nick Nolte, Neve Campbell, Tuesday Weld and Til
Schweiger. Based on the lives and dialogues of the French Surrealists and their
experiences with love and sex, the film concerns two female stenographers who
are hired to transcribe a series of discussions conducted by a group of
intellectually and erotically curious men in 1929 New England. The film was
co-produced by Janus Films, and Cologne based Gemini Films.
Last year, the company produced White
Jazz, based on the novel by James Ellroy (L.A. Confidential), starring Nick
Nolte, John Cusack and Uma Thurman. The film was directed by Academy
Award-winning cinematographer Robert Richardson.
