Ondamax Films howls for ‘Coyote’

New Miami outfit picks up int'l rights to drama

Acquiring its first English-language fiction film, new Miami-based production and sales company Ondamax Films has taken international rights to Brian Petersen’s “Coyote,” a cross-border drama turning on the realities of undocumented immigration.

Produced by the L.A.-based Side Street Productions, which mixes Latino and non-Hispanic filmmakers, “Coyote” toplines director-actor Petersen (“Napoleon Dynamite”), Brett Spreckman, who co-wrote the screenplay with Petersen, Carley Adams and Marina Valle.

The illegal immigration crime drama is produced by Chris Wyatt and Devin Coleman. “Coyote” turns on two young middle-class Americans who smuggle a friend into the U.S., a chance event that snowballs into a business. Their good intentions soon rile a competitor, the coyote of the film’s title.
