HSI's Eric Christenson to commence talks on Brooklyn Brothers
Hollywood Studios International president Eric Christenson has picked up sales rights to comedy The Brooklyn Brothers Beat The Best featuring Oscar nominee Melissa Leo.
Christenson is in Berlin talking to buyers about the story of a two-man band that sets off on a nationwide tour. The project is in post-production and the ensemble cast includes Wilmer Valderrama, Michael Weston and Andrew McCarthy and Jason Ritter.
Jason Michael Berman and Kwesi Collisson are producing and Mark G Mathis, Sergio Aguero, Ruth Mutch and Sandy Berman serve as executive producers.
“Brooklyn Brothers is a sharp, irreverent comedy with an amazing cast,” Christenson said. “Ryan is a gifted filmmaker who’s been able to generate a lot of excitement for this project and have fun with some very universal themes.”
HSI’s slate includes Venezuelan box office hit The Zero Hour (La Hora Cero).
