Brothers JT Alexander and Damon Alexander are launching Route 17 Entertainment with two projects in pre-production — “The Go-Getters” and “A River Between.”
First project for the company, backed by venture capitalist Boone Hyde, is dramatic thriller “The Go-Getters,” with “Brooklyn’s Finest” writer Michael C. Martin making his feature helming debut from his own script. The Alexander brothers will star as lifelong criminals who maneuver through the shady underbelly of Los Angeles in search of wealth, love and redemption.
“The Go-Getters” will shoot on locations throughout L.A.
The Alexander brothers will follow up with “A River Between,” from “Prison Break” actor Lane Garrison. Garrison will direct from his own script and star in a story about a Texas border patrol officer who gets caught up with a brutal drug cartel when he falls in love with a Mexican girl illegally on the run in the U.S. Garrison appeared in “Shooter,” had a recurring role on NBC series “The Event” and will be seen in indie feature “The Devil’s in the Details.”
Martin is represented by ICM. Garrison is repped by Domain and Untitled Entertainment.
