18 May 2014 10:40 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Worldview Entertainment will finance and produce Joshua Zeman’s lonely whale documentary “52″ with Adrian Grenier on board to produce.

Producers are Lucy Cooper at Alldayeveryda, Grenier at his Reckless Prods. and Zeman of Gigantic Pictures. Worldview’s Christopher Woodrow, Molly Conners, Sarah E. Johnson and Maria Cestone will exec produce.

“I’m honored to be part of the Worldview and Alldayeveryday team who can see the importance of making films like ’52′ and who will put their muscle behind such a mythic quest,” Grenier said.

The “Entourage” star joined with Burt Marcus to produce the 2012 documentary “How to Make Money Selling Drugs,” directed by Matt Cooke (pictured above with Grenier).

Zeman is directing “52″ from his own script about the search for a mysterious whale that has lived its life in solitude because it calls out at 52 Hertz — a sonic frequency much higher than that of the blue whale or fin whale. »
