Rights to S. Craig Zahler’s highly sought screenplay, “The Brigands of Rattleborge,” went to producer Brad Fischer earlier today. The script was originally optioned by Warner Bros. but remained unproduced for years, making it onto the 2006 Black List – the industry’s list of the best unproduced screenplays.
“’Brigands’ is a riveting, emotionally-charged story of vengeance and retribution, and there’s simply nothing like it out there,” said Fischer. “Craig’s script has already garnered a great deal of attention from A-list filmmakers and actors and I’m looking forward to helping bring it to the screen along with my partners at Phoenix Pictures.”
Fischer is currently executive producing Darren Aronofsky’s latest, “Black Swan,” starring Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis.
