Steve Waverly wrote the screenplay which Black Label Medias Molly Smith, Rachel Smith, Thad Luckinbill, and Trent Luckinbill are producing with Trina Wyatt. BLMs Jon Schumacher is the executive producer of the project. Kirkes credits include Gone Girl, Mistress America, and Untogether, which recently premiered at the Tribeca.

Young actress Isabella Kai Rice (Pretty Little Liars, True Blood) is set for the crime thriller Cutman, joining alongside Ray Liotta and Jaime King in the Michael Mailer produced-directed film. It follows a retired boxer who is dying of cancer and working as an enforcer for low-level mobsters. He is haunted by the death of his “cutman” and just wants to die in peace before he meets a junkie and her daughter as they all search for meaning and revenge. Tiffany Heath wrote the script. Rice, who currently stars in Awesomeness TVs My Dead EX, will play the junkies daughter Stryk, a wise-beyond-her-years girl who is more of a mother to her heroin-addicted, drifter mother, Josie (King). Shes repped by Innovative and Definition Entertainment.
