Quaid, Efron on Bankside farm team

KillerMoxie’s Justin Nappi and Brian Young produces and Andrew Levitas co-produces.
Financiers and executive producers attached to the project include Bankside Films’ Phil Hunt; Michael Benaroya and Rose Ganguzza of Benaroya Pictures; Moe Al Turki and Ron Curtis.
Bankside is also shopping Famke Janssen’s directorial debut “Bringing up Bobby,” which screened to a packed crowd Thursday, Michael Winterbottom’s “Trishna,” and “The Door,” helmed by Istvan Szabo.
