Alysia Reiner (Orange is the New Black) and Sarah Megan Thomas (Backwards Movie) are two very busy ladies theses days. Having launched the movie production company Broad Street Pictures, they are currently in pre-production for their first movie, Equity.

Equity is the first movie that features women who work on the very competitive and cutthroat Wall Street and the lives they lead.  It's loosely based on a book but written with the input of major female NYC bankers. Move over Charlie Sheen "Noami's" come to town.

Pre Production

Pre-production is the very hectic and important time when a movie gets planned out,  Sarah and Alysia are busy casting all the roles, scouting and confirming locations for all the shoots, working with the director on the vision and storyboards, updating investors, lining up the production team including housing, tweaking the script and fitting in press interviews. Every day counts during this period because time is money once production starts. Productions begins mid-July in Philadelphia and New York City.

This flick is made by two dynamic chicks, and lots of other females are involved. That's one of the premises of Broad Street Pictures, to produce pictures with strong females roles in front of the camera and behind. They've got Meera Menon as the director. She was named one of the Top 35 Under 35 Running Hollywood by Glamour Magazine.  The screenwriter is award-winning Amy Fox (Heights Movie) who worked closely on the script with Sarah and Alysia, Interviews were conducted with female investment bankers to insure authenticity.

Playing the lead is Breaking Bad's Emmy Winner Anna Gunn, who plays Naomi. Watch this talented actress show us another side, as this role is a far cry from her mom role. They'll be no walking into pools this time around.
