John Malkovich, Michael K. Williams, Vivica Fox Join ‘Arkansas’ (EXCLUSIVE)

John Malkovich, Michael Kenneth Williams and Vivica A. Fox have joined Liam Hemsworth and Vince Vaughn in Clark Duke’s feature directorial debut “Arkansas.”

The film follows a pair of low-level drug runners in the Dixie Mafia, portrayed by Hemsworth and Duke, who live by the orders of an Arkansas-based drug kingpin, played by Vaughn, whom they’ve never met. But when a deal goes horribly wrong, deadly consequences ensue. Principal photography began this week in Alabama.

Producers on “Arkansas” are Storyboard Media’s Patrick Hibler, Jeff Rice, and Martin Sprock. Executive producers include Media Finance Capital’s David Gilbery and Charles Dorfman who also funded the film, together with VMI Worldwide’s Andre Relis, Storyboard Media’s Elisabeth Costa de Beauregard and Philip Kim, Hercules Film Fund and Rhea Films’ Paris Kasidokostas-Latsis, Terry Dougas and Jean-Luc De Fanti, Don Kee Productions’ Jason Allison, Michael S. Smith and Franchesca Lantz, and executive producers Patrick Muldoon, Cindy Cowan and Stephanie Caleb.

VMI Worldwide is handling sales for the film at this week’s American Film Market in Santa Monica, Calif., in conjunction with Storyboard Media.

Malkovich is repped by WME, Williams by WME and Silver Lining Entertainment and Fox is repped by Sheila Legette Entertainment.
