Rob Bogue, Will Janowitz and Aubrey Dollar also star. Alexander produced with Terry Leonard and Henry Hardaway, Jeff Mooallem, Casey Cummings and Digital Domain's John Textor served as executive producers.

Alexander, Hardaway and Leonard negotiated the deal with Truly Indie executive director Kelly Sanders and head of business and legal affairs Jason Janego.
