Incognito Pictures has come on board to produce action thriller “Surrounded,” partnering with Patrick Aiello and Industry Entertainment.

“Sourrounded,” described as a “Reservoir Dogs” story set in the Old West, focuses on a single day in the life of a young man who holds a notorious outlaw captive as his gang closes in to take him back.

Incognito’s Jack Selby and Scott Stone will produce with Aiello along with Andrew Deane and Michael Botti of Industry Entertainment.

Script has been written by Andrew Pagana and Justin Thomas.

“‘Surrounded’ deftly executes a highly-charged and unforgiving coming-of-age tale under the most dangerous circumstances and the Western setting perfectly compounds the stakes”, Aiello said.

Incognito Pictures, funded and led by former PayPal executive Jack Selby and Scott Stone, launched last year. It is producing a feature adaptation of documentary short “Freeheld,” starring Ellen Page wtih a script by Ron Nyswaner.

Aiello recently teamed with Industry Entertainment to produce “The Double,” starring Richard Gere. He also produced Emily Mortimer’s “Leonie.”

Industry also recently produced “Fire with Fire,” starring Bruce Willis and Josh Duhamel.

Aiello worked at Hyde Park Entertainment between 2003 and 2011.

Pagana and Thomas are represented at Verve and Industry Entertainment.
