“The Baytown Disco,” by Barry Battles and Griffin Hood, in 2009 the screenplay ranked No. 36 on the “Black List,” a compilation of unfilmed but hot scripts. (No. 2 that year was Academy Award Best Picture nominee “The Social Network.”)

The rousing rebel spirit of a family of Southern thugs takes off at breakneck speed in “The Baytown Disco” — a wickedly playful, high-velocity action-comedy in which three infamously ruthless Alabama brothers find themselves on the wrong side of crooked cops, relentless Feds, mad mobsters, road pirates, tomahawk-wielding bikers, tricky femme fatales and an unforgettable cast of characters as colorful as they are lethal when they finally try to do a single good deed.

Official synopsis:

Academy Award® winner Billy Bob Thornton and Golden Globe winner Eva Longoria headline this wildly explosive, yet ultimately moving, tale of honor breaking out among thieves with madcap results. It all starts when the fetching Celeste (Longoria) has a falling out with her nefarious ex-husband Carlos (Thornton) who kidnaps her beloved son, Rob (Thomas Brodie Sangster). Knowing her ex can be a maniacal psychopath, not to mention a bit trigger-happy, she turns for help to the most bad-ass, lawless hit-man trio in Alabama: the Oodie Brothers.

Ringleader Brick (Clayne Crawford, “24,” “The Glades”), mute wrestling phenom Lincoln (Daniel Cudmore, “The Twilight Saga”), and the baby of the brothers, the kick-ass G.I. McQueen (Travis Fimmel, “The Beast”) are known for being mean as a bag of rattlesnakes –and measly kidnap rescues are not on their menu of services. But when Brick is unexpectedly moved by Celeste's plight, what he thinks is going to be an easy smash-and-grab job turns out to be the most hair-raising and hilariously intense adventure of his and his brothers' harrowing careers.

Suddenly the Oodies have their hometown Sheriff (Andre Braugher, “Men of a Certain Age,” “Salt”), in a tangle; a pesky DEA Agent (Paul Wesley, “Vampire Diaries”) on their trail, and Carlos and his heinous assortment of henchman out for their hides. With no one quite who or what they seem, they are headed for a showdown — and a shot at redemption — they never saw coming.

Now renamed - The Baytown Outlaws (2013)

Los Angeles, CA (June 19, 2012) –
Berry Meyerowitz, President & CEO of Phase 4 Films, announced today that the company is acquiring all North American rights to director Barry Battles' highly sought-after, action comedy THE BAYTOWN OUTLAWS (formerly titled THE BAYTOWN DISCO). The screenplay was written by Battles and Griffin Hood and made the 2009 Black List. The film stars Eva Longoria (DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES), Billy Bob Thornton (MONSTER'S BALL), Paul Wesley (THE VAMPIRE DIARIES), Andre Braugher (MEN OF A CERTAIN AGE), and Thomas Brodie-Sangster (LOVE ACTUALLY). LLeju Production's William O. Perkins financed and produced the film alongside Robert Teitel from State Street Pictures. Hood, Ryan Jones, Thomas J. Busch and Mary Vernieu are executive producing. Phase 4 plans to release the film theatrically in early 2013.

Noted Meyerowitz: “THE BAYTOWN OUTLAWS is an absolute crowd pleaser as it combines lots of action with sharp humor led by an amazing group of actors. We are thrilled to join the team and share the film with audiences.”

LLeju Productions William O. Perkins said, “With Phase 4, we've found the perfect home for THE BAYTOWN OUTLAWS. Barry's direction combined with brilliant performances from our cast, have resulted in an edgy, funny and highly entertaining and commercial film.”

THE BAYTOWN OUTLAWS is a wickedly playful, high-velocity action-comedy in which three infamously ruthless Alabama brothers find themselves on the wrong side of crooked cops, relentless Feds, mad mobsters, road pirates, tomahawk-wielding bikers, tricky femme fatales and an unforgettable cast of characters as colorful as they are lethal when they finally try to do a single good deed.

The deal was negotiated by Phase 4's Larry Greenberg and Katharyn Howe with WME Global on behalf of the filmmakers. Highland Film Group is handling international sales.
