Good Deed Entertainment has acquired North American rights to SXSW title Shotgun, which international sales agent The Exchange is screening at the Cannes market.
The feature tells the dramatic love story of a couple touched by a life-changing illness and stars Jeremy Allen White, Maika Monroe, Gina Gershon, Marisa Tomei, Joe Keery, Sasha Lane, and Dean Winters. Hannah Marks and Joey Power wrote and directed.
“The film, and especially the incredible cast, struck a chord with us as we continue to acquire feature films that resonate with a mature film-going audience,” Good Deed founder and CEO Scott Donley said. “The movie has heart and soul and a unique resonance that moved us.”
“We’re really excited that Good Deed is releasing Shotgun,” Marks and Power said. “We found a team that’s as passionate about the movie as we are.”
The film was produced by Jordan Yale Levine, Jordan Beckerman and Michael J. Rothstein of Yale Productions, along with Sean Glover.
Good Deed Entertainment executive director of acquisitions and distribution Brandon Hill brokered the deal with Nat McCormick of The Exchange.
