admin - Jan 16, 2024 News

“The Eternals” star Gemma Chan and “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” director Destin Daniel Cretton have boarded Lloyd Lee Choi’s Oscar-qualifying short “Closing Dynasty” as executive producers.

“Closing Dynasty,” which received its world premiere at Berlinale earlier this year, tells the story of Queenie, whose life isn’t like that of other kids her age.

“To an adult onlooker, she might seem lost among the towering New York skyscrapers, but 7-year-old Queenie has a clear goal: to make money,” reads the logline. “Hustling for donations, collecting bottles, impressing passers-by with her crafty salesmanship – she’ll do whatever it takes. But we can’t help but wonder why she’s working so hard on a school day. Ultimately, Queenie must confront the realities that she can’t control, in a powerful turn that highlights the resilience of kids in a very grown-up world.”

The film won Berlinale’s Crystal Bear award for best short as well as going on to win SXSW’s Audience Award and AFI Fest’s Grand Jury Prize.

Choi wrote and directed the short while Michelle Hamada, Jonathan Hsu, Paula Weinstein and Nina Chaudry produced.

Cretton previously exec produced Choi’s short “Same Old,” which is now being made into a feature titled “Lucky Lu.” Cretton is attached to produce through his production company Family Owned alongside Ron Najor and Asher Goldstein.

Cretton is repped by WME, Pangea Media and Goodman, Genow, Schenkman, Smelkinson & Christopher. Chan is repped by WME, M88, Independent Talent Group and VRW Publicity. Choi is repped by WME and Canopy Media Partners. [Source]
