Sam Rockwell will star in THE EEL. The 2012 Hit List / Black List script follows an escaped convict (Rockwell) who is ensnared in a plot by a corrupt Sheriff to kidnap the young heiress to an oil fortune, complicating his quest for freedom.
Roberto Bentivegna (who was also on the 2012 Young and Hungry List) will direct from his own script. Kevin Walsh, Nax Faxon and Jim Rash will produce.
Rockwell was last seen in “The Way Way Back” and will soon appear in “Laggies” and “Poltergeist.”
He is repped by Gersh.
