Some of the team behind last year’s Sundance sensation, “The Way Way Back,” are re-teaming for the comedy feature “The Eel”.
Actor Sam Rockwell along with producers Kevin Walsh, Nax Faxon and Jim Rash are all coming together again for the project. They’re joined by Roberto Bentivegna who is directing from his own Black List script.
Rockwell will play an escaped convict who becomes caught up in a plot by a corrupt Sheriff to kidnap the young heiress to an oil empire. Shooting begins this fall in the Southwest.
