Incognito Pictures has come onboard actioner “Hitsville” alongside Spain-based Intuition Films, with the pic to lense in Barcelona and the Canary Islands.
Incognito’s Jack Selby and Scott Stone will be producing with Intuition’s Patrick Juarez. The project was introduced to Incognito by Miguel Govea, who will also be producing.
Ethan Maniquis (“Machete”) has been tapped to direct “Hitsville,” based on an original story by Joseph Ciutat. The screenplay by Noam Dromi (“Dolphin Tale”) and Lawrence Kubik (“Death Before Dishonor”) tells the story of two hitmen attempting to kill a target on a mysterious island and the local inhabitants who will protect a shocking secret at any cost.
Incognito, funded and led by former PayPal executive Selby and Scott Stone, launched last year and is producing a feature adaptation of the documentary short “Freeheld,” with Ron Nyswaner scripting and Ellen Page to star. It announced last month that it was onboard to produce action thriller “Surrounded,” partnering with Patrick Aiello and Industry Entertainment.
Ten-year-old Intuition has recently produced Michel Ocelot’s French animated film “Azur & Asmar,” Spanish film “Isi Disi” and Fox Interactive Channel’s transmedia Web series hit “Porta.” The company is currently co-producing “Futbologia” with Discovery Intl. Networks and has completed Fox Intl. Channel’s “The Wine Quest.”
