Craig Zobel Helming Turkey


Great World of Sound director Craig Zobel will helm Turkey in the Straw for New York-based company Plum Pictures.

The film, a dark comedy set in the South, revolves around a race for county commissioner in a small town that takes an unexpected turn when one candidate shoots the other.

Zobel co-wrote the script with Barlow Jacobs (Low and Behold). Shooting is expected to begin early next year in South Carolina.
