Werc Werk Works, the independent production and finance outfit behind Todd Solondz’s Life During Wartime, will produce and fully finance The Convincer, the latest film from Jill Sprecher (13 Conversations About One Thing)

Sprecher wrote the screenplay with sister Karen Sprecher and will direct the story of a desperate salesman in the Midwest whose scheme to get hold of a rare violin leads to unforeseen consequences.

Werc Werk Works CEO Elizabeth Redleaf and president Christine Walker will produce alongside Mary Frances Budig. Production is being planned for the first quarter 2010.

The Convincer will be the fourth production from Werc Werk Works after the Solondz film, Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman’s Howl starring James Franco and Bela Tarr’s latest The Turin Horse.
