Five All in the Fifth is currently developing large-budget and independently financed feature films. Genres include "hard R" comedies, thrillers, dramas, romantic comedies, horror, and more. Those projects already announced include:
Five All's first movie, PARTY BOAT, is now streaming on Crackle, Sony’s free, ad-supported streaming network. The comedy stars Brett Davern (“Awkward”, “Chosen”) as Max, the fun-loving if irresponsible co-owner of a party boat who must throw his greatest party ever in order to win the heart of best friend Kiley, played by Katie Leclerc (“Switched at Birth,” “Confess”).
Jay Mohr (“SNL,” Jerry Maguire), Sung Kang (“Power,” Fast and Furious 6), Beau Mirchoff (“Awkward”), and Demetrius Bridges (“The Vampire Diaries”) all co-star, alongside YouTube star Jc Caylen (Boo! A Madea Halloween, “T@gged”), Emily Kuroda (“Gilmore Girls,” “Sequestered”), Brittany Krall, and Annie Jacobs.
Dylan Kidd (Rodger Dodger) directs the film off a script by Matt Giegerich and Chelsea Rae Giegerich (Glitch).
"Party Boat" is produced by Amy Kim and Jaime Burke of Lifeboat Productions (“Confess," Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser), and Douglas Banker and Alex Garinger of Five All.
THE AFTER PARTY, a coming-of-age comedy from WorldStar Hip Hop, Hunting Lane Films, and Live Nation Productions, is now in production for Netflix!
The movie stars Kyle Harvey and Harrison Holzer as two best friends trying to land a record deal the night before one goes off to join the military and the other starts college.
Shelly Hennig, Teyana Taylor, Blair Underwood, French Montana, Wiz Khalifa, and Jordan Rock are set to co-star.
Ian Edelman, the creator-writer of HBO's "How to Make It in America," is directing the film off a script he wrote.
The project originated four years ago as an idea hatched by the founder of Worldstar Hip Hop, the late great Lee “Q” O’Denat, and Five All's Douglas Banker. Jamie Patricof, Heather Parry, and Trevor Engelson are also producing. Michael Rapino, Katie McNeill, and Jonathan Montepare are executive producing.
Five All is teaming up with Zac Efron and Paramount Pictures to produce a film loosely based on John LeFevre's book "STRAIGHT TO HELL." Efron is set to star and EP the project.
LeFevre’s notorious @GSElevator Twitter feed offered a hilarious, shamelessly voyeuristic look into the real world of international finance. Hundreds of thousands followed the account, Goldman Sachs launched an internal investigation, and when the true identity of the man behind it all was revealed, it created a national media sensation. "Straight to Hell" added LeFevre’s own story — an unapologetic and darkly funny account of a career as a globe-conquering, win-at-all-costs investment banker.
John M. Phillips (“Dirty Grandpa,” also starring Efron) will write the script.
Efron will EP with his Ninjas Runnin’ Wild producing partners Jason Barrett and Michael Simkin and with Five All in the Fifth Entertainment’s Douglas Banker. Ashley Brucks will oversee for Paramount.
20th Century Fox is developing Five All in the Fifth's true crime project "NARC," based on the actual story of an All-American college kid-turned-police informant. Zac Efron is attached to star as a student, frat president, and sports team captain who’s busted for drugs, then secretly turns narc and helps the cops bust criminals while carrying on his BMOC campus life.
Five All's Douglas Banker will executive produce with Efron’s manager and producing partner Jason Barrett. Julie and Rick Yorn are producing for LBI and Matthew Reilly will co-produce. Grant Myers will write the script.
TriStar Pictures is developing with Five All and Hutch Parker Entertainment the comedy LET’S GET KIDNAPPED from writer Nicholas Thomas ("Let's Be Cops"). Inspired by a true story, the film follows a group of guys who fake-kidnap their friend in order to free him up for their Super Bowl party.
Hutch Parker and Five All's Douglas Banker are producing, with Tom Vance co-producing and Dan Wilson executive producing.
Five All is developing THE PROFILER, a romantic comedy based on novelist and essayist Liza Monroy's book of essays, SEEING AS YOUR SHOES ARE SOON TO BE ON FIRE (Soft Skull). The same true stories also inspired Monroy's New York Times Modern Love column, "When Mom Is on the Scent, and Right."
In "The Profiler," a young woman's mother, a professional profiler for the Foreign Service, tries to find the perfect man for her daughter via her well-honed profiling techniques, only to have those same methods turned around on her.
