Thunder Studios Capital Management has attached $4M in P&A funding to the Whoopi Goldberg-Charlie Sheen drama Nine Eleven. The pic, which is filming in Long Beach, CA, revolves around a group of people stuck in an elevator in the Twin Towers during the 9/11 attack. Martin Guigui is directing from a script he wrote with Steven Golebiowski. Gina Gershon, Luis Guzman, Wood Harris and Olga Fonda also star.
Thunder Studios Capital Management arose out of a joint venture between Thunder Studios and Struans media. Struans Media oversees the division. The new capital commitments include support for P&A on specific projects in development at Thunder Studios, as well as co-productions, film acquisitions, traditional and digital content production, mezzanine and gap capital, and acquisition capital for strategic business alliances.
