Mis-Fits is the upcoming L.D. Napier official directorial debut and a story of a “necro-detective,” who searches for peoples lost and or dead relatives.

And, by the way, it’s the project with some serious cast, because Guy Pearce, Cloris Leachman, Catalina Sandino Moreno, Seymour Cassel and Virginie Ledoyen have all been tapped to co-star in it!

The movie is based on a script by Napier, and producer Doug Claybourne says that Mis-Fits “is a wacky comedy in the tone of Harold and Maude.”

Cinematographer Affonso Beato (The Queen) and production designer Richard Hoover (Dead Man Walking) have also climbed aboard for the project, while Ingrid Michaelson is set to write an original song for the film with music by M. Ward.

NEW YORK -- In the latest financing initiative to emerge in Hollywood, Film 7 Entertainment Group is launching the venture capital fund Film 7, aiming to back about 25 features in the less-than-$20 million budget range during the next five years.

Among them, they have made more than 100 films. Film 7 managing director of finance Brad Blackman rounds out the team.

Film 7 producers, along with investors from Silicon Valley and other non-Hollywood sources, are aiming to develop a library of features through the team's industry connections. They will draw revenue from theatrical, home video, television, merchandising, music publishing and other ancillary sources.

"We are creating a unique and lucrative vehicle for investors, focused around the role, integrity and talent that producers bring to the filmmaking process," said David Valdes, interim CEO of Film 7 Entertainment Group.
