“Matt Rhodes has a wonderful vision for the film, and is an incredibly collaborative producer,” said Zenescope’s Ralph Tedesco.

Mandalay Vision (“Soul Surfer,” “Bernie”) is the indie arm of Peter Guber’s Mandalay Pictures.

Joining Rhodes in producing “The Piper” pic will be Aaron Cruze, Dan Keston, AI president Dave Brown, and Zenescope co-founder Joe Brusha and editor-in-chief Ralph Tedesco.
