Wilson, Ribisi to star in ‘Middle Men’

Indie drama chronicles birth of online porn biz

Luke Wilson and Giovanni Ribisi will star in indie drama “Middle Men,” a chronicle of the birth of the Internet porn industry.

Project has a SAG waiver and will start shooting Oct. 20 in Phoenix, with George Gallo directing from the script he wrote with Andy Weiss.

Pic is being financed through Christopher Mallick’s Oxymoron. Mallick and Blue Star Entertainment’s William Sherak and Jason Shuman (“Bangkok Dangerous,” “The Messengers”) will produce along with Michael Weiss.

Script centers on a straight-and-narrow businessman who builds the first online billing company dealing exclusively with adult entertainment and finds himself in the middle of a whirlwind filled with starlets, conmen, Russian mobsters, federal agents and international terrorists — all while trying to hold on to his marriage and family.

Mallick, an Internet entrepreneur, formed Oxymoron Entertainment last year. Gallo’s writing credits include “Bad Boys” and “Midnight Run.”
