Rocket Science have come on board to finance and handle international sales for the dark comedy Queenpins, starring Leslie Jones (“Saturday Night Live”, Ghostbusters) and Kristen Bell (“The Good Place”, Forgetting Sarah Marshall). Sales will commence in Cannes next week. CAA Media Finance arranged the financing and is handling U.S. rights
Queenpins was written and will be directed by husband and wife team Aron Gaudet and Gita Pullapilly (Beneath The Harvest Sky). It is inspired by the true story of the largest counterfeit coupon caper in history. It centers on two Phoenix best-friends who create a scheme to counterfeit coupons and soon find themselves running a $40 million coupon scam.
Queenpins is produced by Linda McDonough (Drive, Ender’s Game).
