EXCLUSIVE: Feelgood Entertainment has acquired Greek theatrical rights to Paramyth Films’ A Green Story. Indican Pictures holds all remaining worldwide rights.

A Green Story premiered a year ago at the LA Greek Film Festival, whose 2013 edition kicks off on Thursday [6].

The distributor has set a Jul 18 release for the film written and directed by Nika Agiashvili and starring Ed O’Ross, Shannon Elizabeth and Annabella Sciorra.

George Finn, Malcolm McDowell, Billy Zane, Alexis Georgoulis and Louis Mandylor also star in the story of Van Vlahakis, the Greek immigrant who arrived in America with $22 in his pocket and founded the multi-million dollar Earth Friendly Products. 

Agiashvili also produced alongside John Edward Lee, Dimitri Birbilis, Deanna Plascencia and Chadwick Struck. Paramyth Film’s David Agiashvili served as executive producer. The film will premiere in Athens on Jul 15.

“It is a great honour and a source of inspiration to bring this fascinating Greek American dream to the big screen,” said Feelgood Entertainment managing director Irini Souganidou. “More than ever, this is a time to share exemplary, true stories with the Greek audience.”

A Green Story opened in the US through Indican on May 24.
