Jennifer Aniston, Mark Duplass and Ben Kingsley are attached to star in Justin Reardon’s “Convention” for K5 International.
The film, says Deadline, is a ”Charlie Kaufman-esque mind-bender” which “finds mild-mannered Paul (Duplass) and his feisty sister Abby (Aniston) setting out to change the box storage world with Paul’s invention of the 5-sided box. Kingsley plays a maniacal box magnate who seeks to thwart Paul and Abby’s success. Meanwhile, the invention also risks ripping a giant hole in the fabric of the universe. When Paul realizes the damage he’s causing, he races against time to put the galaxy back in order and save the girl of his dreams.”
Reardon, a former commercials director, is getting good buzz for his upcoming film “A Many Splintered Thing”.
K5 Partners Oliver Simon and Daniel Baur say, “We have an absolute dream cast for this dream comedy concept. It brings to mind films like Being John Malkovich, and Eternal Sunshine, and in Justin Reardon we have a wildly talented and totally visionary director.”
