LA-based American Cinema International has added the Polish Brothers’ high school film Stay Cool starring Winona Ryder and Hilary Duff to its AFM roster.
Mark Polish, Chevy Chase, Sean Astin, Josh Holloway and Jon Cryer also star in the tale of a successful author who falls for his high school sweetheart when he returns to give the commencement address.
Michael Polish directed the Initiate Productions film from Mark Polish’ screenplay. Both brothers produced.
“Stay Coolis a sharply written and directed film, eliciting great performances from an amazing cast,” ACI president Chevonne O’Shaughnessy said. “The chemistry amongst the ensemble cast really brings the story to life and delivers both funny and dramatic takes on a peculiar set of circumstances.”
“We’ve been on the lookout for a great, original comedy with mass commercial appeal and Stay Coolis a slam dunk in this category,” CEO George Shamieh said. “The film has the irreverent freshness that audiences are drawn to and truly appreciate.”
Cindy Bond brought the film to ACI and runs the faith and family production label Mission Pictures with O’Shaughnessy.
