Matt Rife, Clare Grant Star In ‘The Private Eye’; Gravitas Ventures Acquires ‘The Friendliest Town’; Darius McCrary, Arclight Films Sets 3-Picture Deal – Film Briefs

Matt Rife (Wild ‘N Out) and Clare Grant (Changeland) are set to star in psychological thriller The Private Eye, along with Eric Roberts (Runaway Train), Erik Griffin (Workaholics), Denzel Whitaker (Black Panther), Eugenia Kuzmina (The Gentlemen), Elijah Boothe (Luke Cage), Jihad Reeves (All American), King Chip (Shootouts), Lexy Panterra (Boo 2! A Madea Halloween) and newcomer Elliot. Jack Cook directed the pic from a screenplay he co-wrote with Hope Ayiyi, Santino Ramos, and Patrick Roe.

Set throughout LA, the mystery drama follows a private investigator Mort Madison (Rife) whose life is spiraling downward, when a beguiling, slightly familiar woman (Grant) hires him for his most unusual case.

Cook and Ayiyi also produced The Private Eye, which is expected to be released in Summer 2021, with Elliot, Alex Kagianaris, and Boothe. Mark Berry and Joe Hebeler are executive producers.
