Odd Lot co-produced and co-financed “Hell or High Water,” which received four Oscar nominations, including best picture. Round Films produced “Maggie’s Plan” and the upcoming “Saturday Church,” written and directed by Cardasis, which will premiere at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival.
Miller and Kidman are repped by CAA. Carell is repped by WME and Steve Sauer of Media Four Management. Schumer is repped by UTA and Carrie Byalick of B Company.
