‘Thumbsucker’ hits target at Bull’s Eye

Mills to make feature-helming bow with Kim adaptation

Bull’s Eye Entertainment will finance and produce the dark coming-of-age comedy “Thumbsucker,” with Matthew McConaughey and Vincent D’Onofrio added to an ensemble cast that includes Keanu Reeves and Tilda Swinton.

Set for a July 9 start in Beaverton, Ore., Mike Mills will make his feature-helming bow with the adaptation of Walter Kirn’s novel.

Scripted by Mills, “Thumbsucker” is the story of an anxious teen with a serious thumb-sucking habit. In desperation, he turns to the only sensible people he knows: an orthodontist (Reeves) and a high school debate coach (McConaughey).

Anthony Bregman of This Is That and Bob Stephenson of Cinema-Go-Go produce the pic. Exec producers are This Is That’s Ted Hope and Anne Carey, along with Bob Yari and Cathy Schulman of Bull’s Eye. Jay Shapiro of Cinema-Go-Go will co-exec produce.

Bull’s Eye is a partnership of Yari, Schulman, Tom Nunan and Mark Curcio. Company begins production today on its first feature, “Employee of the Month,” starring Matt Dillon, Steve Zahn and Christina Applegate.

Cinema-Go-Go’s most recent production was “The Dangerous Life of Altar Boys,” directed by Peter Care and released last summer by ThinkFilm.
