Armory Films to Produce THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON

THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON follows a down on his luck crab fisherman as he embarks on a journey to get a young man with Downs Syndrome to a professional wresting school in rural North Carolina and away from the retirement home where he’s lived most of his life. The story is based on a real life person, Zachary Gottsagen, who is living with high functioning Downs Syndrome.  The writer/producer duo Tyler Nilson and Michael Schwartz met him while working at a non-profit arts organization.

The project has attracted a host of prime talent wanting to participate including Dakota Johnson (50 SHADES OF GREY) Bruce Dern (THE HATEFUL EIGHT) and Shia LaBeouf  (TRANSORMERS).
