‘Rock the Kasbah’ producer Anton Lessine cuts a deal in Pacific Palisades

Russian film producer Anton Lessine, whose movie credits include “Sabotage” (2014), “Fury” (2014) and the recently released comedy “Rock the Kasbah,” has bought a home in Pacific Palisades for the asking price of $3.995 million.

The modern-style house, built on more than half an acre in the Palisades Highlands, calls attention with an angular design, curving walls of glass and open-air walkways.

Among features are hardwood floors, a glassed-lined foyer and a circular living room with an Onyx wall fireplace. About 6,100 square feet of open-plan space includes a contemporary kitchen with a wide center island, a formal dining room and a gym.


A private patio with a dry sauna is accessed through an office/library. The master suite has a fireplace, a lounge and a glassed-in steam shower for a total of four bedrooms and five bathrooms.

Double glass doors open to landscaped grounds with a patio and a swimming pool and spa.

He operates QED International, a production studio and financier, with business partner Sasha Shapiro. Among the studio’s upcoming projects is the comedy “Dirty Grandpa” starring Robert De Niro and Zac Efron.

Lara Kajajian of Nourmand & Associates, Brentwood, was the listing agent. Glenda Lousignont of Keller Williams Realty, Brentwood, represented the buyer.
