The Dunning Man

The Dunning Man, a dark comedy/drama directed by first-time filmmaker, Michael Clayton follows Connor Ryan's (James Carpinello - Gotham, Gangster Squad, The Punisher) attempt to rebuild his life after losing his job and girlfriend. His last bastion of hope lies in three neglected Atlantic City rental properties sitting in the shadows of one of AC's hottest and sleekest new casinos. Ignoring the warnings of his uncle, Bishop (Tom Kemp - Blue Jasmine, Brotherhood, Shutter Island), Connor accepts a new tenant offering 3x the normal rent, and ends up deeper in debt and danger than he could have imagined. In order to keep his dream alive, Connor has to take on Stryker Jones (Nicoye Banks - Green Zone, Invincible, Focus) - a philosophizing hip-hop star, a pair of Chechen tiger trainers, and Alice (Dawn Lyen-Gardner - Queen Sugar, Luke Cage, Star Wars: The Clone Wars), a single mother who steals his heart. Based on the short story by Kevin Fortuna, this film was a labor of love. With an amazing cast and crew, including Emmy Award-winning DP Petr Cikhart (The Amazing Race, Dog The Bounty Hunter) and Editor Ian Blume(Change in the Air, The Bourne Legacy) Clayton has accomplished a lifelong dream and proven himself one of the most promising new filmmakers of 2017 by bringing Fortuna's story, The Dunning Man, to life on the big screen.
