Congratulations to Dusty Mancinelli and Harry Cherniak whose NSI Features First-developed project Little Kings has added Deepa Mehta as executive producer, alongside her business partner David Hamilton.
Little Kings is about two brothers with a volatile relationship who venture to a small mining town with the intention of tracking down and claiming the reward money for finding a violent robber.
The project was part of the Whistler Film Festival’s Feature Project Lab and Praxis Screenwriters Lab, as well as developed through NSI’s Features First Program.
