Main Street Films chairman Craig Chang has appointed Harrison Kordestani to the dual roles of president of both Main Street Films and 982 Media. This comes as Main Street boards as financier the Murali Krishna Thalluri-directed One. The film is a racially fueled post-apocalyptic adventure as seen through the eyes of a 26-year old girl. She is the hope of her world, yet holds fundamental doubts about whether she can live up to this daunting task. Thalluri’s M2E Pictures and Kent Smith of the Kojo Group are producing (they also produced Thalluri’s 2:37). Filming starts later this year in South Africa.
Commenting on Harrison’s appointment, Chang said “When founding this new company, and its funding partner entity we needed to find someone who could bring both business affairs expertise and a background in managing creative projects. Harrison was by far the best candidate for the position, and in the short time of knowing him, we appreciated his candor and problem-solving approach.” Said Kordestani: “It has long been my dream to be able to marry my legal and business background, with an involvement in both getting films made and distributed worldwide. I am excited to be with Main Street Films at the start of their journey, and look forward to helping the company and its funders to realize the success they so richly deserve.”
