Coming together onscreen, Wes Bentley and Joe Mantegna are both poised to highlight "Hank and Mike", a dark comedy of Canada-based Darius Films and Shoreline Entertainment production, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Directed by Matthiew Klinck, the project concerns two foul-mouthed Easter bunnies who get fired and try their hand at a various number of bizarre jobs. Bentley will portray an efficiency consultant while Mantegna is plotted to play the owner of Easter Enterprises.
Assuming the titular roles will be Thomas Michael and Paolo Mancini who also wrote the screenplay. The twosome reportedly have been performing and honing the characters on television and stage in Canada since they created the rabbit buddies nearly ten years ago.
