Sam Rockwell to Star in THE EEL; Reunites with Production Team behind THE WAY WAY BACK

     January 17, 2014


Just in time for his Sundance premiere in Laggies, it’s been announced that Sam Rockwell will star in the lead of The Eel.  Writer-director Roberto Bentivegna’s film centers on an “escaped convict (Rockwell) who is ensnared in a plot by a corrupt Sheriff to kidnap the young heiress to an oil fortune, complicating his quest for freedom.”  Rockwell would reteam with the producers of last year’s Sundance stand-out, The Way Way Back.  The trio of Kevin Walsh, Nat Faxon and Jim Rash are in the midst of naming their new production company.  Production is planned to start this fall in the Southwest.
