Los Angeles, Californiaâ€” David Gordon Green, Jody Hill, and Danny McBride of Rough House Pictures announced their signing as executive producers of the new edgy and dramatic documentary â€œFraud,â€ last Thursday (November 3).
As a studio for comedy, Rough House Pictures is also â€œhubâ€ for drama that has produced several successes including the military throttled â€œCamp X-Ray,â€ starring Kirsten Stewart, and Golden Lion nominated 2014 smash â€œManglehorn,â€ and redemption piece â€œJoe.â€
Dean Fleischer-Camp, writer and director of â€œFraudâ€ said he is pleased to be working with Rough House Pictures, believing the partnership to be out of â€œwild and unconventional love.â€
â€œTheir energetic support and partnership on this is a testament to their creative ingenuity and truly thrilling lack of good judgement,â€ Fleischer-Camp said.
Produced by Memory Production Companyâ€™s Riel Roch-Decter and Sebastian Pardo, â€œFraudâ€ is a documentary centered around a familyâ€™s home moviesÂ that documents a crime spree and struggle to achieve the American Dream, webbed in virtual world of YouTube uploads and mutability.
Jody Hill said in a Brigade Marketing press release that â€œFraudâ€ is a film that she has never seen before that intrigued her until the conclusion.
â€œThe whole time I was watching it I was thinking, Iâ€™ve never seen anything like this before. I couldnâ€™t look away.Â I had to see what happened next. It had me going all the way through the end,â€ she said, â€œItâ€™s probably the most fun movie Iâ€™ve seen in the last couple of years.â€
â€œFraudâ€ will premiere at American Film Instituteâ€™s AFI Fest. There will be two showings of the film, the first starting on Saturday, November 12 in TCL Chinese Theatre 3 at 7 p.m. and the second on Monday, November 14 in the Chinese Theatre 4 at 4:15 p.m..
