Dark comedy Revenge For Jolly! premiered at Tribeca earlier this month. It’s produced by Atlas Independent, the division of Charles Roven’s Atlas Entertainment that’s headed by William Green. Highland Film Group is now on board to handle international sales on the film about a guy who goes on a hunt for the person who killed his beloved Miniature Pinscher. Chadd Harbold makes his feature directing debut while Brian Petsos, in his screenwriting debut, stars. He’s joined by Oscar Isaac – who’ll next be seen in the Coen brothers’ Inside Llewyn Davis – and a group of actors that includes Elijah Wood, Adam Brody, Kristen Wiig, Ryan Phillippe, Gillian Jacobs, Bobby Moynihan, Garret Dillahunt, Kevin Corrigan, David Rasche and Jayne Atkinson. Green produced along with Aaron Ginsburg and Petsos. Atlas Independent is on track to produce three pics per year with such other upcoming titles as Sacha Bennett’s Get Lucky in post-production and Apollo 18 director Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego’s Open Grave starting principal photography on May 4. William Monahan’s Mojave is also due to start filming later this year.
