The Canadian feature, to shoot in Halifax this summer, stars comedy troupe Picnicface in its debut feature after a string of irreverent comedic short films that secured a cult following online.
“Roller Town” portrays three friends in the 1980s looking to stop a local crime syndicate from transforming a roller rink into a video arcade.
The eight-strong Picnicface troupe is repped by United Talent Agency.
Bill Niven and Jay Dahl are producing “Roller Town” from a screenplay penned by Bush, Mark Little and Scott Vrooman.
The distribution deal was hammered out by Tony Cianciotta for D Films and Nivens for Bad Astronaut.
