LA-based independent producer/distributor Showcase Entertainment has picked up international sales rights to two new pictures - romantic comedy Dumped and high-tech thriller The Code Conspiracy.

Dumped, which is written and directed by former child actor Oliver Robbins (one of the children in Poltergeist), stars Dana Barron as a young woman who embarks on a mission to snare her long-time boyfriend (Seth Peterson). Hollywood Video has already acquired the domestic video rights; international buyers will see the film at AFM.

The Code Conspiracy features Jim Fitzpatrick as a software billionaire who is racing to develop a technology which the government wants to destroy. Maria Conchita Alonso plays the head of a rival software giant who also wants the technology. The movie also stars recording star Lou Rawls and was written, produced and directed by Hank Whetstone.
