Napoleon Dynamite ' producer introduces who dunnit caper Carter & June

 

 

The producer of the cult hit Napoleon Dynamite has a new feature film in tow, the action-packed, stick ‘em up, who dunnit caper Carter & June. Television’s familiar faces Michael Raymond-James (Jack Reacher, ABC’s “Once Upon A Time”, FX’s “The Walking Dead”), Samaire Armstrong (It's a Boy Girl Thing, ABC’s “Resurrection”), and Timothy Omundson (FOX’s “Lucifer” ABC’s “Galavant”, USA Network’s “Psych”) star in the wild bank heist story directed and written by Nicholas Kalikow, it was announced today by producers Sean Covel, and Diane Richey and Kyle Roper of Sacred Bull Media.

 

Jack Campbell’s sales outfit, Octane Entertainment, will introduce the film and shop worldwide rights to buyers at the upcoming European Film Market in Berlin next week. They will also preview a brand new trailer to their buyers.

 

Sean Covel is the producer of nine feature films including the cult classic Napoleon Dynamite released by Fox Searchlight which garnered him an Independent Spirit Award nomination, as well as Paramount Pictures’ Beneath, 12 Dogs directed by Academy Award Winner Keith Merrill for Universal Studios, Cafe starring Jennifer Love Hewitt, Broken Hill starring Academy Award Winner Timothy Hutton, and 20th Century Fox’s Concrete Blondes. He is also the Co-Producer of the Napoleon Dynamite animated television series for FOX.

 

Carter & June features original songs from Robby Krieger, best known as the guitarist for the famed rock group The Doors.

 

In a world populated by Dixie-land thugs, strippers, scam artists and gangsters, Carter & June tells the story of down-and-out New Orleans con man, Carter Jennings, (Raymond-James) who tries to pay off a debt to ruthless strip club owner Spencer Rabbit, (Omundson) by piggybacking off of someone else’s bank robbery and immediately gets in way over his head.

 

“We are thrilled to partner with Octane on this very special project,” said Sacred Bull Media’s Richey. “With Jack Campbell’s expertise, we know the film is in good hands and have the utmost trust that his team will find the right home for the film in the global marketplace.”

 

“We are so excited with Carter & June. It’s an incredible combination of a well-crafted story with solid comedic beats. It has a real edge to it that takes it a notch above your usual heist fare,” added Campbell, President of Octane Entertainment. “We are seeing a lot of enthusiasm from our buyers already.”

 

Michael Raymond-James can be seen starring in Disney’s The Finest Hours opposite Chris Pine, Casey Affleck, and Eric Bana. Additionally, he was in director Christopher McQuarrie's Jack Reacher with Tom Cruise and Road To Paloma opposite Jason Momoa. Raymond-James also starred in ABC's popular series “Once Upon A Time”. Other television credits include a series regular role on HBO's “True Blood”, as well as roles for such shows as FX’s “The Walking Dead”. Raymond-James made his feature film debut in Black Snake Moan with Christina Ricci and Samuel Jackson.

 

Samaire Armstrong has appeared on such iconic television shows as FX’s “ Sons Of Anarchy”, CBS’ “The Mentalist,” HBO’s “Entourage” and Fox’s “The O.C.” for which Entertainment Weekly named her as a Breakthrough Artist of the Year for her work on the latter two series. She has also starred on ABC's critically acclaimed series “Resurrection” and in ABC’s “Dirty Sexy Money”. Her feature film credits include It’s A Boy Girl Thing, Windsor Drive, A Winter Rose, 5 Souls, Concrete Blondes, and Around June.

 

Timothy Omundson recently starred in ABC’s “Galavant “, the USA Network original series “Psych”, and WB’s popular series “Supernatural”. Most recently, Timothy wrapped Universal Studios’ live-action/animated reboot of Woody Woodpecker, the independent films Wild Honey as well as the television pilots NBC’s “Me And Mean Margaret” and CBS’ “What Goes Around Comes Around”. Coming up for Omundson, he will take on the role of God Johnson in the FOX hit series “Lucifer”.
