I AM JEFFERY DEITCH is a movie I hope to make very soon. It's a $5 million feature.

I AM JEFFREY DEITCH is a darkly comic sci-fi thriller set in the modern day art world. It follows Jeffrey Deitch, real-life art dealer, curator, and former head of LA's MOCA.
Against the wishes of a greater art establishment, Jeffrey is preparing to launch the world’s first Street Art exhibition, when he finds that he has a late-stage cancer that will almost certainly prevent him from living long enough to see the show to completion.
Jeffrey’s luck seemingly turns for the better when he meets Chris Cunningham, robotics artist and video director, who offers to transfer Jeffrey’s consciousness into the body of a 25-year-old girl, so that Jeffrey can complete his mission with her body.
After the successful transfer, Jeffrey soon discovers he has gotten more than he bargained for, as he finds himself caught up in a conspiracy threatening the art world at large. In the end, Jeffery must battle the conspirators to save the art world, all while adjusting to life in a brand new body.
