Artisan bets on ‘Trifecta’

Scribes will star in pic with Sedaris, Dinello to helm

Artisan Entertainment has acquired worldwide rights to “Trifecta,” a comedic script from the creators of Comedy Central’s “Strangers With Candy,” Paul Dinello, Stephen Colbert and David Pasquesi.

The film, now being developed at Artisan, will be helmed by Dinello and star all three writers as well as Amy Sedaris, who currently stars in “Strangers.”

The movie centers around two hapless brothers who break away from their boring lives and join forces with a psychotic conspiracy theorist. The trio then plans an ATM heist that ends up going haywire.

The agreement was brokered by Patrick Gunn, executive VP at Artisan, and Erin Austin, senior VP, business & legal affairs, and Mark Beigelman on behalf of the producers. Mike Lubin at the William Morris agency represents the filmmakers.
