Groundswell Productions and Fox Searchlight Pictures announced today that principal photography for LOLA VERSUS began today in New York City

hollywoodnews.com: Groundswell Productions and Fox Searchlight Pictures announced today that principal photography for LOLA VERSUS began today in New York City starring Greta Gerwig (GREENBERG), Zoe Lister-Jones (BREAKING UPWARDS), Joel Kinnaman (AMC?s “The Killing”), Hamish Linklater (THE FUTURE), three time Academy Award® nominee Debra Winger (RACHEL GETTING MARRIED) and Bill Pullman (IGBY GOES DOWN). Acclaimed New York-based filmmaker Daryl Wein (BREAKING UPWARDS) is directing from an original screenplay he co-wrote with Lister-Jones. The film has been acquired and will be released in North America, UK, France and other major international territories by Fox Searchlight Pictures. Groundswell Productions is financing with Michael London and Jocelyn Hayes Simpson producing and Janice Williams executive producing. LOLA VERSUS will be shot entirely on location in New York City.

With LOLA VERSUS, Wein and Lister-Jones, a unique couple both professionally and personally, have crafted a comedic take on modern relationships told from the female perspective. Gerwig plays Lola, a 29-year-old woman dumped by her longtime boyfriend Luke (Kinnaman) just three weeks before their wedding. With the help of her close friends Henry (Linklater) and Alice (Lister-Jones), Lola embarks on a series of desperate encounters in an attempt to find her place in the world as a single woman approaching 30.

Gerwig garnered critical recognition co-starring with Ben Stiller in Noah Baumbach’s GREENBERG. She followed this with the lead role in ARTHUR opposite Russell Brand. As an actress, Lister-Jones co-starred alongside Wein in their indie comedy BREAKING UPWARDS and was recently seen in SALT and STATE OF PLAY.

Kinnaman is best known for his breakout role in the AMC hit television series “The Killing.” A native of Sweden, he recently completed production on SAFE HOUSE with Denzel Washington and will next be seen in David Fincher’s THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO. Linklater (Henry) won the Obie award in May this year, for his hilarious performance in the theatre production of The School of Lies and is the star of the up and coming feature, THE FUTURE.

Winger, who plays Gerwig’s mother, returned to the screen in 2010 in RACHEL GETTING MARRIED opposite Anne Hathaway. She also co-starred in the final season of HBO’s “In Treatment” alongside Gabriel Byrne. Pullman, cast as Lola’s father, is best known for his roles in INDEPENDENCE DAY and WHILE YOU WERE SLEEPING. He recently starred in Curtis Hanson?s ?Too Big To Fail?, HBO?s telefilm chronicling the stock market crash. Ebon Moss Bachrach (WEDDING DAZE), Jay Pharoah (“Saturday Night Live”) and Parisa Fitz-Henley (THE SORCERER’S APPRENTICE) round out the supporting cast.

Groundswell Productions is an independent financing and production company founded by Michael London in February 2006 with office headquarters located in Los Angeles.

Fox Searchlight Pictures is a specialty film company that both finances and acquires motion pictures. It has its own marketing and distribution operations, and its films are distributed internationally by Twentieth Century Fox.
