For The First 1917, perhaps check for information under the production company Poverty Row, the director Jennifer DeLia, or screenplay for the film by Josh Fagin.

I think that project is dead.

“The First,” a long-gestating biopic about beloved screen star Mary Pickford, has added a new executive producer to its growing ranks. Ajay Dhebar of IMC Group Media, in association with IMC Holdings and IMC Entertainment, has been brought on to the production to finance the feature, which has been in development since 2012.
As it happens, IMC Group Media's websiteis now defunct. The last Youtube posting from IMC was in 2016. If mr. Dhebar isn't even able to pay for his own website, what are the chances he can finance a biopic?

I looked into it some more. It is in post-production. True, it could die before being released. Looking at this link as of March it looks like they are determined, though.

They were filming the movie back in December 2016 apparently. They had stills from production that were posted on Facebook. The problem they now face assuming filming is completed is post-production, distribution and exhibition. One thing is for certain, I will be one of "The First" to see it if/when it does go to festival. :wink:
