Lakeshore International, the sales arm of Tom Rosenberg's Lakeshore Entertainment, has picked up international rights to Fisher Stevens' romantic comedy Just A Kiss which will be released in North America by Paramount Classics in September 2002.
Starring Taye Diggs, Ron Eldard, Kyra Sedgwick, Marley Shelton and Marisa Tomei, Just A Kiss is an ensemble piece written by Patrick Breen about six New Yorkers and their struggles with relationships, commitment and fidelity. Stevens combines the live action in the film with animation and rotomation, a technique which animates live action images. It was produced by Matthew Rowland and GreeneStreet Films in which Stevens is a partner and was world premiered in the Panorama section of the Berlin Film Festival in Feb.
GreeneStreet is currently in post-production on Swimfan to which 20th Century Fox has acquired domestic rights and in pre-production on Boaz Yakin's Molly Gun for MGM.
Lakeshore's Cannes slate also includes Robert Benton's The Human Stain starring Anthony Hopkins, Nicole Kidman and Ed Harris, William Friedkin's The Hunted with Tommy Lee Jones and Benicio Del Toro and horror picture Underworld which will be distributed domestically by Screen Gems.
