Fledgling distributor and producer Inception Media Group has acquired all US rights from Moonstone Entertainment to the action thriller 2:22 featuring Val Kilmer.

Phillip Guzman directed the heist story about a bungled boutique hotel robbery on New Year’s Eve. Lenny Bitondo produced and Guzman co-wrote with Mick Rossi, who stars alongside Robert Miano, Aaron Gallagher, Jorge A Jimenez and Peter Dobson.

Santa Monica-based Inception was recently formed by Andy Reimer and David Borshell and will stage an exclusive theatrical release in Los Angeles on June 18 with DVD and Blu-ray launch set for autumn.

Reimer called 2:22 an entertaining, smartly written and tightly directed heist movie boasting terrific performances.”
