Broad Green Buys Morgan Freeman-Tommy Lee Jones’ Comedy ‘Villa Capri’

Broad Green has finalized a deal for U.S. rights to  Ron Shelton’s action-comedy “Villa Capri, starring Morgan Freeman  and Tommy Lee Jones.

Braod Green will also co-produce the film with Entertainment One (eOne), Billy Gerber and Endurance’s Steve Richards.  John Mass and Alan Simpson are executive producers on the film.

The movie will be released nationwide just ahead of the Labor Day weekend on Aug.  25, 2017 and is slated to begin principal photography in New Mexico this summer.

Jones plays an ex-FBI agent  and Freeman portrays an ex-mob lawyer in the witness protection program. They have to put aside their petty rivalry on the golf course to fend off a mob hit.

The film is being financed by eOne and Endurance Media. eOne will directly distribute the action comedy in Canada, the UK, Australia/New Zealand, Benelux and Spain.

Sierra/Affinity is handling foreign sales for the remaining international rights at Cannes.

Broad Green used the same pre-Labor Day weekend release last year for its first wide opening with Robert Redford-Nick Nolte comedy “A Walk in the Woods,” which grossed nearly $30 million domestically.

Broad Green’s Marc Danon negotiated the deal. Freeman and Jones are both represented by CAA. Shelton is managed by Oasis Media Group.
