Los Angeles, CA, November 12, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Independent production company You Did It! Productions (“YDIP”) has joined forces with Jane Berliner, and Authentic Talent and Literary Management, to co-produce the film JONESTOWN. Ms. Berliner will be joining Devin Cutler, Stewart Hall, and Lee Ettinger of YDIP as producers of the film and Joseph Nathan Weisman, who is serving as Executive Producer.
JONESTOWN, written by Jeffrey Goldman, is the true story of Reverend Jim Jones, who headed the Peoples Temple and ended up orchestrating the mass murder-suicide of 909 of its members in Jonestown, Guyana in 1978.
In JONESTOWN, we follow the rise and the tragic and horrific fall of Jim Jones as he leads the Peoples Temple into infamy. Simultaneously, we learn the story of Bethany Gibbs, a teenager who falls under the Reverend’s sway and, like many others, is drawn into the bizarre world of the cult.
“We are excited to be working with Jane on this wonderful film,” said Stewart Hall. “Jane brings her immense industry experience, her excellent eye for talent, and her amazing drive to a project that all of us feel has the potential to be a standout film.”
