Gang’s all in for mob laffer

Kingsley, Leoni and Wilson will star in indie pic 'Kill'

Ben Kingsley, Tea Leoni and Luke Wilson will star in helmer John Dahl’s “You Kill Me,” a mob comedy penned by writing duo Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.

Code Entertainment is financing and producing the indie pic with Kingsley’s shingle BiPolar Prods., Carol Baum Inc. and Mike Marcus’ Echo Lake Prods. Lensing is to begin later this month in Winnipeg.

Film also stars Dennis Farina, Philip Baker Hall, Bill Pullman and Marcus Thomas.

Story revolves around a hitman from Buffalo sent to the West Coast to dry out. He attends AA meetings, gets a sponsor and lands a job in a mortuary, where he meets a woman who is a relative of one his hits.

Producers are Code’s Al Corley, Bart Rosenblatt and Eugene Musso, along with Baum, Mike Marcus and Zvi Howard Rosenman. Leoni and Jonathan Dana are exec producing.

Dahl’s earlier films include “Red Rock West” and “The Last Seduction.”

Markus and McFeely’s credits include Disney’s “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe” and HBO pic “The Life and Death of Peter Sellers.”

Recent Code titles include “Noel” and “Drowning Mona.” The indie production and financing firm’s upcoming slate includes “The Gravedancers,” “Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon” and David Mamet’s “Edmond.”

“You Kill Me” was brought to Code by ICM’s Independent Film Group, which will handle U.S. sales with Endeavor Independent. Capitol Sales is repping rights overseas, and is taking the pic to Cannes.
