Armory/Bender sets Frigerio to write ‘JTAC’

Military thriller in works at newly launched genre-pic venture

Newly minted Armory/Benderspinkweiner has targeted David Frigerio to pen its military thriller “JTAC.”

Move comes three weeks after the launch of the partnership to finance low-budget genre movies.

“JTAC” follows a young joint terminal attack controller who teams up with a small spec ops unit to hunt down a high value Al Qaeda target on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border. When the mission gets compromised, the JTAC finds himself alone, insurgents on his trail, trying to stay alive.

Frigerio has sold projects to Montecito Pictures/DreamWorks, Dimension Films and Millennium Films. Benderspink’s productions include “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone” and “We’re the Millers” at New Line and “The Hangover Part III” at Warner Bros.

Armory Films, founded last year by Chris Lemole, Tim Zajaros and Billy Asher Rosenfeld, is in pre-production on supernatural thriller “Indelible,” to be directed by Howard J. Ford.

Frigerio is repped by Michael Weiss at Abrams Garfinkel Margolis Bergson and managed by Jonathan Hung at Hung Entertainment. The deal was put together by Armory’s attorneys Lawrence Kopeikin and Ryan Pastorek of Morris Yorn Barnes Levine Krintzman Rubenstein & Kohner.
