McAvoy, Banks, Linney join ‘Details’

Estes' black comedy to shoot this summer

James McAvoy, Elizabeth Banks, Laura Linney and Anna Friel are set to star in “The Details,” a black comedy scripted and directed by Jacob Estes.

Story concerns a couple, to be played by McAvoy and Banks, who discover an infestation of raccoons in their back yard. Disagreements over how to deal with the animals lead to an escalating series of events.

Lensing is set to begin this summer in Seattle.

Mark Gordon is producing alongside Bryan Zuriff and Hagai Shaham.

The film is the first for Estes since his 2004 thriller “Mean Creek.”

Estes was hired to rewrite another script for Gordon, who read “The Details” and boarded the project.

Gordon’s producing the upcoming Roland Emmerich-directed “2012” for Sony and a Fox 2000 drama based on Patricia Cornwell’s series of Dr. Kay Scarpetta novels.

Gotham-based shingle Ergo Films is financing the project. ContentFilm is handling worldwide sales.
