Unified Pictures, Bron Studios, Unanimous Entertainment and Media House Capital have just started production on A Single Shot, the David M. Rosenthal-directed thriller that stars Sam Rockwell, William H. Macy, Jeffrey Wright, Joe Anderson, Jason Isaacs, Kelly Reilly, Ophelia Lovibond, and Melissa Leo.
An adaptation of the Matthew F. Jones novel, A Single Shot is the story of a dark and deadly game of cat and mouse, prompted by the tragic death of a young girl. Rockwell plays a wild-game poacher who makes a fatal mistake that leaves him with a suitcase full of blood money and hardened killers on his trail. As the hunter becomes the hunted, John Moon is forced to defend his family and fight for his life. Jones wrote the script. Unanimous Entertainment’s Chris Coen is producing alongside Unified Pictures’ Keith Kjarval and Bron Studios’ Aaron L. Gilbert.
“It’s so rare to find a script that legitimately works in both the sense of genre and of art,” Rosenthal said. “When I first read A Single Shot, its cinematic potential blew me away. The movie literally unfurled in my mind like a long flip book and I’ve been riding a wave of excitement ever since. Add to that a cast of actors whose work I absolutely revere, and you can understand why my heart is pounding to do this film justice.”
In addition to Gilbert’s Bron Studios’ producing role on the film, Gilbert’s Media House Capital, a senior debt lender to the global film industry, provided the gap and pre-sale financing. Inferno is selling international rights, and UTA Independent Film Group will rep domestic.
