'Napoleon Dynamite'

Michael Raymond-James, Samaire Armstrong, Timothy Omundson will star in the feature being produced by Sean Covel.

Raymond-James (Jack Reacher, Once Upon A Time, The Walking Dead), Samaire Armstrong (It's a Boy Girl Thing, Resurrection), and Timothy Omundson (LuciferGalavant, Psych) are teaming for Carter & June, an upcoming heist comedy being produced by Sean Covel (Napoleon Dynamite).

The film, being written and directed by Nicholas Kalikow, was announced Thursday by Covel, alongside producers Covel, 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.

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. 

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

"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."
