. Obamas’ Film Label Makes Unexpected New Buys « JO LEE MAGAZINE

Hollywood Reporter – Higher Ground productions picked up ‘Worth,’ a 9/11 drama that “sat on the shelf for 13 months,” and teamed with Kevin Hart to release ‘Fatherhood’.

A project insider says Barack Obama is a friend of Ken Feinberg, the lawyer who oversaw the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund and protagonist of the film. (Feinberg is played by Keaton). During his presidency, Obama picked Feinberg, who has been supportive of the film and traveled to Park City for the premiere, to run a $20 billion fund to pay BP oil spill claims and to oversee the compensation of top executives at bailed out banks.
