Dakota is on the ‘Run’

Shingle sells loudmouth laffer to New Line

Nascent shingle Dakota Pictures has sold pic “Run Ronnie Run” to New Line Cinema and snatched up the spec script “Swinging on a Star.”

The Hollywood-based Dakota produced “Run” along with Mark Burg and Oren Koules. Troy Miller served as a producer and helmed the comedy. Bob Odenkirk, David Cross, Brian Posehn, BJ Porter and Scott Auckerman co-wrote, with Bernie Brillstein, Tim Starkes, Carl Mazzocone, Michael DeLuca and Richard Brenner exec producers.

Story centers on the rise of a belligerent loudmouth, who with the help of a British TV producer, becomes famous after his multiple arrests on a cops-style TV show. New Line plans an April release.

“Swinging on a Star,” penned by Kathy Gori and Alan Berger, is a potential directing vehicle for Miller. It’s a dark comedy about a family of California highway patrolmen, centering on two cousins who find themselves wife-swapping.

Miller’s “The Announcement,” shot on high definition, was recently selected as the closing night film of the U.K’s Greenwich Film Festival.
