“We’re thrilled to be working with such remarkable talent such as Omari Hardwick and Meagan Good, whose relationship over the course of this one night is a powerful yet understated emotional journey,” Meg Longo, Samuel Goldwyn Films’ senior director of sales and marketing, said.
“I can’t think of a better company to partner with for this next phase of the journey of getting our film out to the world,” Basir said.
“Samuel Goldwyn has a solid track record,” Turner added. ”They were extremely passionate about our film and the talented people involved with making it so we believe we are in good hands.”
Longo negotiated the deal on behalf of Samuel Goldwyn Films with CAA, Turner, and attorney Linda Lichter of Lichter, Grossman, Nichols, Adler & Feldman.
