North of Hell

Writer(s): Carlo Allen, Ted Elrick, Tom Lavagnino
Producer(s): Burns, A.J. Buckley, Jeff Culotta and Darko Ent.’s Sean McKittrick
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
Cast: Katherine Heigl, Jordana Brewster, Patrick Wilson

2010’s Skateland, a Sundance Dramatic Comp entry played well in Park City and it found tlc support but the coming-of-ager didn’t find it’s audience when released theatrically so we’re hoping that Anthony Burns’ North of Hell (a dramedy with a little more acting clout) retains some of the filmmaker’s atmospheric prowess.

Gist: Based on a story by Carlo Allen, Ted Elrick and Tom Lavagnino, and scripted by Anthony Burns, this is about a seductive and scheming new hire causes dangerous problems for a businessman who is married to a bi-polar, obsessive-compulsive woman.

Release Date: With Sundance out of the equation, we now think this could land at Tribeca or TIFF.
