Matthew Kennedy penned script, and Richard B. Lewis (Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, Backdraft, August Rush) is producing through his Southpaw Entertainment banner alongside David Wulf (upcoming The Night Clerk). UTA and Highland Film Group are co-repping the US rights with Highland Film Group handling foreign sales, which will continue in Berlin at the EFM this week.
