Crispin Glover and Martin Klebba have joined the cast of Motel, the indie action thriller being toplined by John Cusack, Robert De Niro and Rebecca Da Costa.
Red Granite International, the international sales arm of Red Granite Pictures run led by Danny Dimbort and Christian Mercuri, has come aboard handle foreign sales for Motel.
David Grovic is directing the film, now in production. It's based on an original screenplay by James Russo with a rewrite by Grovic and Paul Conway.
Dominic Purcell and rapper Kirk “Sticky Fingaz” Jones are also among the cast.
Motel is described as a taut crime thriller centering on a hit man (Cusack) hired by an infamous crime boss (De Niro). To complete the job, the man must fight his way through a cast of other shadowy characters who also have been summoned by the mobster to a decrepit backwater motel in the Delta bayous. When the man crosses back with a mysterious woman, they partner up to escape from the crime boss’ clutches and survive a night of murderous havoc.
Glover, still best known for his much-appreciated work in the classic Back to the Future movies, most recently appeared in MGM’s comedy Hot Tub Time Machine and has Freaky Deaky, based on the Elmore Leonard novel, in the can. He is repped by Don Buchwald and Associates/Fortitude.
The diminutive Klebba appeared in Project X as the “angry little person,” was part of the short-lived TV show The Cape and appeared in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies.
