Beau Flynn and Tripp Vinson of ContraFilm will produce with Aaron Kaplan and Sean Perrone serving as executive producers. At the studio, Richard Brenner, Cale Boyter and Magnus Kim are overseeing. Liebesman is repped by Principato-Young Entertainment, CAA and attorney Karl Austen at Jackoway Tyerman Wertheimer Austen Mandelbaum & Morris. He's also attached to direct "Mile Zero" at Phoenix Pictures.
