The film, which also stars Ed Skrein, Bill Skarsgård, Linda Lavin and Tim Blake Nelson, is the directorial debut of Chase Palmer, who wrote the screenplay for “It.” Palmer wrote the screenplay for “Naked Singularity” with David Matthews (“Vinyl,” “Narcos,” “Boardwalk Empire”), based on the book by Sergio De La Pava, for which he won the PEN/Robert W.

Doubting all he has worked for, and on the edge of a mental breakdown, his life unravels as he is pulled into a high-stakes heist by a unpredictable young defendant (Cooke).
The producers are Tony Ganz, Kevin J. Walsh, Ryan Stowell, P. Jennifer Dana and Ross Jacobson.
