AMBI Group, the movie development, finance, production and distribution group owned and run by Andrea Iervolino and Lady Monika Bacardi, is financing the film and producing with Rabbit Bandini Productions and That’s Hollywood Pictures Production. Producers are Andrea Iervolino, Lady Monika Bacardi, Scott Reed, Vince Jolivette, Ron Singer and Iris Torres.
The film is based on John Steinbeck’s gritty, realist style novel In Dubious Battle, which portrays the struggle between labor and capital in 1930s America as close to all-out warfare. Writer Matt Rager (As I Lay Dying) adapted the feature screenplay based on the novel. Principal photography on the film will commence in March.
Julie Sultan, head of AMBI Distribution, the worldwide sales arm of the AMBI Group, will formally introduce the project in Berlin and handle international sales.
