EXCLUSIVE: FilmEngine has acquired Blacklisted, a script by Banipal and Benhur Ablakhad. They are keeping the plot under wraps but it is described as a young-skewing buddy caper movie that has a bit of Dirty Dozen and Ocean’s Eleven in it. FilmEngine’s Anthony Rhulen and Navid McIlhargey will produce alongside Josh Weinstock. Devin Andre is overseeing. Producers have begun the search for a director and young international cast.
FilmEngine next releases the Robert De Niro/John Travolta-starrer Killing Season. Weinstock most recently worked at Red Wagon and is now producing via Weinstock Entertainment. The scribes are repped by UTA and Kaplan/Perrone Entertainment.
