Google founders fund movie

Google founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page have invested in a low-budget, independent film written and directed by a friend of theirs from Stanford University, according to an article in the San Francisco Chronicle.

The film, "Broken Arrows," cost just under $1 million to produce and will be released next year, the article said. The writer/director is Reid Gershbein, who works in computer graphics at DreamWorks Animation when he's not filming.

"I can't say how lucky I am," Gershbein said of the investments. "They were extremely generous."

The Web site of the movie describes it as: "A story of love and a struggle over the virtues of free will versus destiny. It follows the journey of Reese, who becomes a hitman after he loses his wife and unborn child, as he confronts the forces of love, faith, and destiny."
