Romantic Comedy Next For Stop Loss Director Kimberly Peirce

Human Rights Organization spotlights the U.S. director for grant.

In the nine years since Kim Peirce’s success with Boys Don’t Cry, she’s been pitched a number of projects but spent most of those years between researching and writing her newest film Stop Loss. However, Peirce’s next project appears to be a light and swift 180 from her past two issue-oriented films as she tackles a wholly different genre: the romantic comedy.

In an interview with RT, Peirce described her next project as a “reality inspired” romantic comedy, with a new spin. “[There are] two scripts that I’m writing,” Peirce said. “One is a dark sexual story and one is a romantic comedy, both inspired by reality. It’s a gender twist on the classical romantic comedy.”

Perhaps proving this romantic comedy will offer some socially relevant ideas, a UN associated Human Rights Organization has offered Peirce a grant to fund the first portion of production.

“They’re picking 20 filmmakers from 20 different countries and they’re giving us a really nice sized grant,” she explained. “I’m going to use [it] to shoot the first three minutes of the romantic comedy in the next few months.”

Though much has been made of the nine-year absence from filmmaking Peirce took between Boys Don’t Cry and this week’s Stop-Loss, she is preparing to take shorter rests between her next projects: “I’m reading scripts in Hollywood and hoping there’ll be a script I can jump into pretty quickly that I love and is meaningful.”

Stop Loss hits theatres today and currently has a Tomatometer of 61 percent.
