Filmmakers Mark and Michael Polish have followed up their Sundance Film Festival hit “Twin Falls Idaho” with “Jackpot,” a drama that serves as the second piece of an intended trilogy. The Polish brothers will put the third title, “Northfork,” into production this fall.

“Jackpot” stars two actors from “Twin Falls,” Jon Gries and Garrett Morris, in a story adapted from the Lester Irving bio “The Grand Tour.” Gries portrays an aspiring singing star and Morris is his road manager as they search the country for a loving audience.

Adam Baldwin, Mac Davis, Anthony Edwards, Daryl Hannah and Peggy Lipton also appear in the pic.

All three films in the Polish trilogy are named for their U.S. locales. “Jackpot” refers to the town of Jackpot, Nev., while the upcoming “Northfork” refers to Northfork, Mont.

Michael Polish directed “Jackpot,” with Mark Polish serving as producer; the brothers split scribe duties. Co-producers are Michael Huens and Gries.

Repping the film and the brothers is attorney Paul Mayersohn of Surpin, Mayersohn and Edelstone.
