Producer James Hardy of Alhambra Pictures is proud to announce that he has optioned “Burning Andolini” by James Allen. Alhambra will produce the holiday comedy in association with Middaysun Productions. The tandem is short-listing directors and hopes to sign on a helmer within the next few weeks.
Two bands of hopelessly inept burglars descend on the same house at the same time bent on relieving a country-bumpkin casino winner of his ill-gotten windfall. Smelling a rat, the casino dispatches old-school mafioso Michael Andolini to ferret out the whereabouts of their money and to throw a little fat on the fire. If these bickering and greedy hostages and hostage-takers don’t quickly dispense with the buffoonery this Thanksgiving dinner will be notable for the diners being cooked before the turkey.
