Bleiberg Is Thinking Oscar For Goldblum; He’s Also Self-Distributing

bleiberg.jpgEhud Bleiberg, a producer and sales guy on the AFM-style indie circuit, is taking the risky road by launching a self-distributed film called “Adam Resurrected” with Jeff Goldblum in the lead role.

The film, directed by “Taxi Driver” writer Paul Schrader, has been on the screening circuit of late and is in mini-Oscar-qualifying runs at theaters like the Sunset Laemmle 5.

“It’s not only a phenomenal film, but it’s the best film out this year,” bragged Bleiberg to FBLA. “It should win awards and Jeff should be nominated.”

Though it was shut out by the Golden Globes, Bleiberg is still very hopeful on the Oscars nods. He’s on the hook for a good chunk of the film’s $10 millon budget. His Bleiberg Entertainment is keen on maintaining control.

Goldblum plays a former circus entertainer who was spared from the gas chamber and became the ringleader at an asylum for Holocaust survivors.

Bleiberg is self-distributing the piece, largely because he wasn’t being flooded with offers from the indie big boys, though it did well at the Telluride Film Festival over Labor Day. But he’s convinced it will be noticed simply because he’s so good in the role.
