‘Baytown Disco’ gets new financer

Lleju Productions to lead production

Indie company Lleju Productions will take over financing and producing duties for Southern-set comedy “The Baytown Disco,” from first-time director Barry Battles.

“Baytown Disco,” about three redneck brothers who agree to help a woman get her son back from his abusive father, will be the first collaboration between Lleju and Robert Teitel and George Tillman’s State Street Pictures banner.

Lleju, who optioned the Battles-Griffin Hood-penned script, controls the underlying rights.

“We found Barry and Griffin’s script to be edgy, fun and entertaining, which is synonymous with the Lleju brand,” said Lleju founder and prexy William O. Perkins. “This is the ideal project for us to partner with Bob and George.”

Pic will follow Lleju’s Paz Vega starrer “Cat Run,” set for theatrical release on April 1, then “The Chameleon,” with Ellen Barkin and Famke Janssen, later this spring.
