Morris Ruskin's Los Angeles-based production, financing and sales company Shoreline Entertainment has acquired worldwide sales rights to Jim Kouf's comedy A Fork In The Road.

Shoreline will seek to tempt buyers in Berlin with the story of an escaped convict and a murderous farmers wife who go on the run to Mexico and eventually fall in love. Josh Cooke and Jaime King star.

Director of acquisitions Brandon Paine and director of worldwide distribution Sam Eigen negotiated the deal with Jim Kouf, Lynn Kouf, Paul Bernard, James Scoura, Clark Bartkowski, Doug Healy, Alan Hergott and Richard Thompson on behalf of the film.

Shoreline's EFM slate includes the Canadian heist caper High Life starring Timothy Olyphant and Joe Anderson that will screen in Berlin's Panorama, as well as the market debuts of comedy Asylum Seekers and the Israel-Poland wartime drama Spring 1941 with Joseph Fiennes.
