Alfonso Pineda Ulloa will direct from a script by Barry Gifford (Wild At Heart), Christopher Peditto and Ulloa based on Elliott Chaze’s noir novel from 1953.
The story is about an escaped convict and high-class call girl whose lives are changed by an armored car heist.
“We’ve received a great response to the script from the buyers” said Cargo president of distribution Mark Lindsay.
“It has it all; great writing, rich engaging characters and top-notch talent both in front and behind the camera,” added Marina Grasic, managing partner of Cargo.
The shoot will start in September for producers Christopher Peditto, Anthony Moody and Elijah Wood.
