Jackson will co-star in the project. Sayles will exec produce.

Pic, to be directed by Sandy McLeod and scripted by McLeod and Eugenie Bafaloukos, is set to begin production in mid-July in Florida.

Schweickert’s Seattle Pacific Investments and Persinger’s Fresh Produce Co. are banding together to produce pics in the $3 million to $8 million range. The company will be L.A.-based.
