Paramount Pictures announced today it has acquired distribution rights to Middle Men which debuted at the Santa Barbara Film Festival. It stars Luke Wilson, James Caan, Giovanni Ribisi and Gabriel Macht in a true story about a successful business “fixer” who gets caught between the Russian mob, a 23-year-old porn star, the FBI, and losing his family – but also becomes incredibly rich in the process. Directed by George Gallo (writer on Midnight Run, writer on Bad Boys, director on 29th Street) from a screenplay by Gallo and Andy Weiss (White Boy), the Oxymoron Entertainment/Blue Star Entertainment film was produced by Christopher Mallick, William Sherak, Jason Shuman and Michael J. Weiss for a 2010 release.
