Unified’s roster includes Janie Jones, which was acquired for US theatrical release by Tribeca Films and stars Abigail Breslin, Elizabeth Shue and Alessandro Nivola and is a co-production between Unified and David Lynch’s Absurda.

Teen comedy Cherry stars Kyle Gallner, Laura Allen, Brittany Robertson, Esai Morales and Matt Walsh.
