Duo will push ‘Button’

Kass, Braun to bring assassin thriller to theaters

Roger Kass and Josh Braun — the exec producers behind David Cronenberg’s current Cannes entry “A History of Violence” — are set to produce a big-screen adaptation of John Wagner and Arthur Ranson’s graphic novel “Button Man: The Killing Game” as a big screen feature.

“Violence,” which is being released through New Line, was adapted from a graphic novel by Wagner and Vince Locke.

“Button” is a stylish thriller about a small group of jaded millionaires who pit their own personal assassins against each other in a clandestine, deadly high stakes game.

Kass and Braun, who closed the deal heading into the fest, were in Cannes this week meeting with potential European co-partners and U.S. studios.

As sales reps, the duo recently brokered deals to sell off the Sundance docu “Unknown White Male” to Wellspring and Court TV.

They also rep rights on this year’s Sundance winner, Ira Sachs’ “Forty Shades of Blue.”
