Variety says that writer/director George Gallo will direct Oxymoron Entertainment’s first feature, Middle Men, a comedy chronicling the start of the Internet porn business.
The film is being financed through Christopher Mallick’s Oxymoron. Mallick and Blue Star Entertainment’s William Sherak and Jason Shuman (Bangkok Dangerous, The Messengers) will produce.
The script by Gallo and Andy Weiss centers on a straight-and-narrow businessman brought into a world that would eventually turn into a multibillion-dollar industry.
The project is set to begin filming in Los Angeles in September.
