Myriad Pictures and Gravitas Ventures have announced at AFM a multi-year deal granting Myriad exclusive sales rights to hundreds of Gravitas’ new release and library narrative films.
Key narrative titles Myriad Pictures will be selling include the Tye Sheridan (pictured) and Jeffrey Wright drama Age Out; drama Already Gone with Seann William Scott and Shiloh Fernandez; drama I’m Not Here with J.K. Simmons and Mandy Moore; thriller Wetlands with Heather Graham; thriller Dark Crimes with Jim Carrey; and family title Christmas Break-In with Denise Richards.
The deal covers new narrative acquisitions and catalogue narrative titles with international rights available. D’Amico has begun tlaking to buyers at AFM. Gravitas Ventures will continue to distribute in North America.
“We look forward to collaborating with Gravitas on future titles especially since Gravitas has demonstrated over many years and many titles that they know what works commercially at every level of distribution,” said Myriad CEO Kirk D’Amico. “Nolan and his team have consistently shown excellent results on the titles that they have released.”
“Gravitas Ventures is thrilled to collaborate with Myriad Pictures, an industry leader in film distribution,” said CEO Nolan Gallagher. “Our catalog has now grown to the point where working with Myriad will allow us to expand the international presence of our diverse slate of narrative films and continue to acquire commercial films for global audiences.”
Bo Stehmeier, president of Gravitas owner Red Arrow Studios International and the executive in charge of distribution at Red Arrow Studios, said: “Selling independent film is a specialist business, and as the Gravitas catalog continues to grow rapidly, it makes sense to appoint film specialists to ensure that Gravitas’ international business continues to expand.”
