Gravitas Ventures snaps up Slamdance trio
The VoD distributor has acquired rights to Steven Feinartz’s documentary The Bitter Buddha, Michael Urie’s comedy He’s Way More Famous Than You and Peter Baxter’s Shrovetide Football documentary Wild In The Streets.
Gravitas plans to release each film in the next three months, starting with The Bitter Buddha in select theatres on Feb 15 followed by VoD roll-out four days later.
Wild In The Streets narrated by Sean Bean [pictured] is set to open on Apr 23 and He’s Way More Famous Than You goes out on VoD on Apr 8 and in theatres on May 10. Archstone Distribution will handle the remaining domestic rights and all international rights.
“We are thrilled to be working with such an array of talent coming out of Slamdance,” said vp of acquisitions Melanie Miller.
“Nobody channels the cultural zeitgeist quite like Eddie Pepitone, no-one with a competitive edge would want to be left out of hundreds of years of bloody town tradition in Wild In The Streets. And, who doesn’t want to work and co-star in a movie with Halley Feiffer? At least that is what Halley believes and she’s got the moxie to convince you too!”
