Gramercy in ‘Deep’ deal as Garofalo joins cast

Gramercy Pictures has picked up the domestic rights to “In Too Deep,” the Vince Vaughn/Joaquin Phoenix starrer that Scott Free Prods. is producing, the studio said.

Janeane Garofalo also has joined the cast of Vaughn, Phoenix and Georgina Cates. David Dobkin, one of Ridley & Tony Scott’s commercial directors, is helming from Matt Healy’s script.

Pic, which begins lensing April 21 in Salt Lake City, is being financed by Nigel Sinclair and Guy East’s Interme-dia.

Plot is about a guy named Earl (to be cast) who discovers his best friend (Phoenix) is sleeping with his wife (Cates). Earl then creates a plan to kill himself and frame the friend for the murder. Vaughn plays a serial killer and Garofalo an FBI agent.

Ridley and Tony Scott and Chris Zarpas are producing. Audrey Kelly and Carrie Morrow will co-produce.

Garofalo’s credits include the upcoming “Copland,” “Romy & Michelle’s High School Reunion” and “The Truth About Cats and Dogs.”

Zarpas said the pic should be delivered to Gramercy by the end of September, meaning it would have a shot at consideration for the Sundance Film Festival. Gramercy has released several films at Sundance in the last few years that went on to win Oscars, including “Fargo” and “The Usual Suspects.”
