"Several years ago I began working alongside the Capote estate and writer Tristine Skyler to adapt Summer Crossing, an inspired early work of Truman's which has long captured my heart. Being able to bring this story to the screen as my full length directorial debut is a life dream and deep privilege."
The story centers on a privileged 17-year-old girl in 1945, who decides to skip her family's trip to Paris, so she can start up a relationship with a young Jewish valet parking attendant.
Aldamisa is financing, with Sergei Bespalov, Peter D. Graves, and Barry Spikings producing. Production is slated to begin in the first half of 2014.
