Cinedigm announced on Tuesday [30] that Dick Figures: The Movie, based on the animated YouTube series created by Ed Skudder and Zack Keller, will open on Sept 17.

Six Point Harness produced the film following a $300,000 raise through Kickstarter in summer 2012 and has partnered with distributor Mondo Media, Cinedigm, YouTube and Yekra on the forthcoming release.

The film will open on Sept 17 and tells of two best friends, Red and Blue, who race around the world hunting down the ultimate birthday gift – The Great Sword Of Destiny.

The film will roll out over all major digital platforms and the distributors are expected to reveal further details in early September.
