Jon Avnet's "Righteous Kill," set to star Robert DeNiro and Al Pacino, has secured a North American deal with Overture Films, the company's CEO Chris McGurk and COO Danny Rosett announced Monday. Written by Russell Gewirtz, the film features the DeNiro and Pacino as, in the words of an announcement, "two detectives on the hunt for a serial killer whose victims are criminals who have slipped through the cracks of the justice system. After following a trail of clues, the detectives soon realize the killer had unusual access to his victims, the type of access only another cop would have." Millennium Films is producing the movie along with Randall Emmett and Rob Cowan. It is set to start shooting this September in Bridgeport, CT and New York City. Overture’s Sean Furst, EVP Productions and Acquisitions, will oversee production for the company. [Eugene Hernandez]
