Brigsby Bear” producer 3311 Productions has come on board a pair of thrillers — Chad Hartigan’s soccer ref story “The Fifth Official” and Gerard Johnstone’s carjacking movie “Sympathy for the Devil.”

“The Fifth Official,” written and directed by Hartigan and produced in partnership with Gran Via Productions, is a European thriller following a soccer ref as he attempts to throw a match for the first time. Hartigan last wrote and directed A24’s “Morris From America,” which premiered at Sundance and won the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award for Hartigan and a Special Jury Prize for acting for Craig Robinson.

“Sympathy for the Devil” is written by Luke Paradise and produced in partnership with Tracy Falco. Johnstone’s first movie was the horror comedy “Housebound,” which premiered at SXSW in 2014.

Mark Roberts and Ross Jacobson launched 3311 Productions in 2010 to serve as a producer and financer of independent films. Its credits include Anna Kendrick’s “Table 19,” Lake Bell’s “In a World…” “Mr. Right” and “Approaching the Unknown.” The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.
