Highlighting Their New Partnership Entertainment Companies Forge Ahead with Pre-sales on ‘Grady’
CANNES – (May 17, 2017) – On the eve of the Cannes Film Festival, it was announced that Breakthrough Entertainment’s new collaboration with Blue Fox Entertainment will feature the distribution and co-production of several feature films including the pre-sales for action thriller film, GRADY.
Ron Perlman, star of Sons of Anarchy and the Hellboy franchise, is attached to the project and production is slated to shoot later this year, with more name talent being attached to join Perlman. The film is a hard-hitting yet heart felt story of a legendary hit man with the unique power to feel no pain. He comes back out of hiding when his family becomes hunted by another hit man that is just like him, only more deadly. The picture will be directed by D.C. Hamilton.
“Since forging this relationship, further collaboration with Blue Fox Entertainment provides an opportunity for both studios to complement each other and grow in terms of the production, sales and distribution of premium titles,” said Nat Abraham, Partner, President, Distribution of Breakthrough Entertainment.
“Breakthrough Entertainment is a first class operation, and we are thrilled to continue to expand our relationship with them. They have made for a terrific partner on several of our titles, many which are set for theatrical release later this year, said Todd Slater and James Huntsman of Blue Fox Entertainment in a joint statement.
The initial pact with Blue Fox Entertainment was secured just prior to EFM in February 2017, and will feature four other new films, including: SHORTWAVE (by the producers of hit indie thriller The Invitation), THE TRUTH ABOUT LIES (starring Cloverfield’s Odette Annable and Cabin in the Woods’ Fran Kranz), HEARTLAND (starring Laura Spencer from Big Bang Theory and Beth Grant from Little Miss Sunshine), as well as festival acclaimed horror film CHILD EATER.
