David and Nathan Zellner will direct Andrea Riseborough, Jon Hamm, Nicholas Hoult, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Mackenzie Davis, Sofia Boutella and Steven Yuen in the science-fiction comedy “Alpha Gang.”
“Alpha Gang” is heading to next week’s Cannes virtual market, with Protagonist Pictures handling international sales and CAA Media Finance handling North American sales. Shooting is supposed to commence in 2021 in Eastern Europe.
The film centers on aliens sent on a mission to conquer Earth. Armed and dangerous, they show no mercy, until they catch the most toxic, contagious human disease of all: emotion. Their plan for world domination is in danger of derailing once they start to feel joy, fear, empathy, and – worst of all – love… But hopefully they can still annihilate mankind before it’s too late.
The Zellner Brothers - David and Nathan Zellner will direct and produce with David Zellner Penning the script. Adele Romanski and Sara Murphy of Pastel will be producing.
“I’ve been wanting to make this film for a long time — a genre mashup of sci-fi, action and comedy,” said David Zellner. “Nathan and I couldn’t be more excited about the incredible cast joining us for this wild ride.”
Dave Bishop, CEO of Protagonist Pictures, said: “’Alpha Gang’ is a hilarious, fast-paced and highly commercial movie with a phenomenal A-list cast and is exactly the dose of humor that the market needs right now.”
Riseborough is represented by CAA, Independent Talent Group and Untitled Entertainment, while Hamm is represented by CAA and Forward Entertainment. Hoult is represented by UTA and 42.
