We’re hearing that the hot new crime/thriller spec RUN & GUN by Richard Tanne and Travis Baker is now in everywhere! Tanne and Baker have worked together for a while now, starting with horror/comedy “2001 Maniacs” before going on to “Bombay Beach” and “Mischief Night,” which Baker wrote and directed. This project marks only the third time the duo have penned a script together, though. They co-wrote thriller spec “Into the Dark” in 2011 and “The Roman,” a historical drama following the early life of Julius Caesar as he rose through the ranks of the Roman army, was imprisoned by Cilician pirates and eventually became ruler of Rome. That project is being produced by heavy hitters Stephen Levinson and Mark Wahlberg. And keep an eye out for their next project “Worst Friends,” which stars Tanne himself and is set to be released this fall.
Their latest spec, which is out from WME and Dobré Films, follows a robber, a vigilante, and a cop who go toe-to-toe over the course of a day-long manhunt through the streets of Los Angeles after a bank heist that goes disastrously wrong. Sounds like a typical day in the city, right? Well, expect to hear more about this project because it’s sure to be snapped up quick!
