APA signs two Sundance scribes
Rookies Morgan Jurgenson, Antonio Macia ink with agencyPARK CITY -- APA has signed two rookie screenwriters with films at the Sundance Film Festival.
Morgan Jurgenson, who also is managed by Jonathan Hung, co-wrote the Park City at Midnight horror-comedy "Tucker & Dale vs. Evil" with the film's director, Eli Craig. The film tweaks a common kids-in-the-woods convention by pitting two sweet hillbillies trying to fix up their vacation cabin against a group of privileged college kids convinced that the mild-mannered Tucker and Dale are actually psycho killers.
Tyler Labine, Alan Tudyk and Katrina Bowden star in the film, which has been fielding interest from potential buyers at the fest.
Macia, also is repped by Underground Entertainment, co-wrote and co-starred in the 2003 coming-of-age drama "Anne B. Real," which was nominated for the John Cassavetes Award at the 2004 Independent Spirit Awards.
