2016 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Gary Michael Schultz’s Vincent-N-Roxxy


Half a dozen shorts, one unheard of horror feature film offering (2013’s Devil In My Ride) and several indie producing creds most recently William H. Macy’s Rudderless, Gary Michael Schultz managed to land an impress set of indie players in Emile Hirsch, Zoë Kravitz, Zoey Deutch, Emory Cohen, Beau Knapp and Scott “Kid Cudi” Mescudi for his attention getting sophomore title. Principal photography on his love/violence themed revenge thriller began in Louisiana last December and it could potnetially have a soothing chaotic look as it was Fishing Without Nets’ Alex Disenhof on board as cinematographer.

Gist: Based on a story by Keith Kjarval, this follows a down-on-their-luck pair of rebels who fall in love and fall apart when their violent pasts catch up with them.

Production Co./Producers: Unified Pictures’ Keith Kjarval (The Layover). Executive Producers: Robert Ogden Barnum, Jason Cloth, Nadine DeBarros, Jeff Elliott, Aaron L. Gilbert, Erika Hampson, Jeff Rice, Ben Ruffman, John R. Sherman, Gregory P. Shockro.

Prediction: If this revenge thriller ups the ante – it could land in the Premieres section. SXSW and Tribeca are good bets as well.

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available. WME (domestic).Fortitude International (international).
