Ving Rhames, Ellen Barkin, Rob Corddry, Bob Odenkirk, Jeffrey Tambor and Maggie Q are all in “Rogue’s Gallery,” an action comedy directed by Fouad Mikati.
The film, written by Brian Watanabe and Abe Levy, is produced by Michael Ohoven and Kevin Turen of Infinity Films and Richard Kelly, Sean McKittrick and Ted Hamm of Darko Entertainment. Chadwick Clough, an executive producer on the film, brought the project to Darko; Darko executive Jeff Culotta will oversee.
“Rogue’s Gallery” details the battle that ensues among groups of government spy teams in an underground facility after their boss is assassinated. The movie began shooting last week in and around downtown Los Angeles.
Joe Anderson, Odette Yustman, Adam Scott and Emilie de Ravin also star in the film.
“It’s very rare that you can find a script which combines dry, witty humor with high-intensity action,” Ohoven said. “In spite of the impending actors strike, we are confident in our decision to begin production.”
