Cinedigm Acquires the Adventurous New Comedy SPY INTERVENTION

-

Theatrical, On Demand & Digital Release Planned for February 2020 

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cinedigm Corp. (NASDAQ: CIDM) announced today that it has acquired North American rights to SPY INTERVENTION, a spy comedy from the Producer of Salt and Enchanted Sunil Perkash, and director Drew Mylrea. The film stars Drew Van Acker (TV’s “Pretty Little Liars”), Poppy Delevingne (Kingsman: The Golden Circle), Blake Anderson (TV’s “Workaholics”), Brittany Furlan (We Are Your Friends), Max Silvestri (Table 19), and Natasha Bassett (Hail, Caesar!).

Cinedigm will release the film in select theaters, on demand and digital in February 2020, with a DVD release to follow later in the year.

"SPY INTERVENTION is just such an adrenaline shot of pure entertainment. With wildly creative and unique directing by Mylrea and the incredibly elevated performances from the entire cast, we anticipate audiences will be delighted with this clever and witty film,” said Sunil Perkash, adding, "The incredible creative team behind our film has made a truly stand out independent film I am as proud of as any of my previous bigger studio releases."

In the film written by Mark Famiglietti and Lane Garrison, after Corey Gage (Drew Van Acker), the world's greatest spy, suddenly meets Pam Grayson (Poppy Delevingne), the woman of his dreams, he decides to abandon his adventurous existence to settle for the security of suburbia - a quaint way of life he's never known. However, it doesn't take long for Corey to become completely bored with many dinner parties, bowling, and the monotony of mowing the lawn, and despite his best efforts to feign interest, his marriage has become more of a chore than a cheer. When an evil plot to ruin the world arises, Corey’s former colleague and best spy friend (Blake Anderson) enacts a "spy intervention" to bring Corey back to his old life for one last mission. Corey is all too eager to jump at another chance to save the world, and possibly his listless marriage. Adding to the cast of rising stars are Brian Sacca (The Wolf of Wall Street), Dave Sheridan (Scary Movie), and Lane Garrison (Shooter).

“SPY INTERVENTION is a reimaging of the spy genre,” said Yolanda Macias, Cinedigm’s Executive Vice-President of Acquisitions. “It has all the action and espionage audiences have come to expect plus a lot of comedy and some romance as well. Cinedigm can’t wait to provide a cinematic experience and blow the cover off this film in February.”

Sunil Perkash also notes that “while there were several other offers, Cinedigm won the bid with their passion and vision for the picture.”

The deal was negotiated by Josh Thomashow, Director of Acquisitions for Cinedigm, and Joanna Korshak and Christine D'Souza Gelb from Endeavor Content. International rights will be handled by Hyde Park Entertainment.

Perkash produces along with Ryan R. Johnson (Z for Zachariah), Martin Sprock (Under the Silverlake,) Akaash Yadav, and Anil Yadav. Drew Van Acker Executive Produced.

“We the North”: Relive a Historical and Triumphant 2018-19 Season with the NBA’s Official Toronto Raptors Championship Film
+
-

Cinedigm & NBA Entertainment set to release 2019 NBA Champions: Toronto Raptors on Blu-ray™ Combo, DVD & Digital October 22, 2019 

TORONTO, Oct. 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- With a nation hanging on their every shot, the Toronto Raptors made history by becoming the first-ever Canadian team to win an NBA title. Produced by NBA Entertainment, the official licensed commemorative championship film, 2019 NBA Champions: Toronto Raptors, will be released on Oct. 22 by Cinedigm (NASDAQ: CIDM). The film offers exclusive behind-the-scenes access, interviews, commentary and never-before-seen footage that takes fans through the triumphant 2018-19 season filled with hard-fought battles, bold trades and a captivating collection of players from around the globe determined to bring the Larry O’Brien Trophy to Toronto for the first time ever.

“We the North” is much more than a rallying cry; It speaks to the collective dedication of a team, its fans and a city to achieving the ultimate championship goal laid out by the Raptors’ front office, led by Team President, Masai Ujiri. On the heels of a disappointing loss in the 2018 NBA Playoffs, team architect Ujiri acted boldly, acquiring one of the most complete two-way players in the game, Kawhi Leonard, while fearlessly handing the coaching reins to rookie head coach Nick Nurse. The 2018-19 Toronto Raptors were not built like the typical NBA championship squad; Much like the multi-cultural metropolis they represent, the squad was a captivating collection of players from around the globe with a wide variety of backgrounds. Without a single lottery pick on the roster, the Raptors earned their respect the old-fashioned way – between the lines.

For Kyle Lowry, the longest-tenured member of the squad, his seventh season in “The 6ix” was about redemption. For Pascal Siakam, whose amazing journey from Cameroon is chronicled herein, the season was a chance to establish himself as a rising star after fulfilling his father’s dreams. And for veterans like Marc Gasol – who was added in a trade deadline deal – and Serge Ibaka, the campaign provided a perfect opportunity to play for a ring.

2019 NBA Champions: Toronto Raptors takes fans through the Toronto Raptors’ championship run from the first day of training camp through the scintillating six games of the 2019 NBA Finals against the returning champions, the Golden State Warriors. Viewers will also experience all the outrageous optimism and electric enthusiasm of the jam-packed crowds at “Jurassic Park” in Maple Leaf Square and in towns across Canada. Hear the firsthand accounts from the team, including exclusive interviews with Kawhi Leonard, Kyle Lowry, Nick Nurse and Marc Gasol, who helped make it happen in the greatest season of the franchise’s history. Bonus features are also included, with player profiles and in-depth analysis.

View the official film trailer HERE.

Bonus Features (on Blu-ray™ Combo, DVD & iTunes Extras):

 

     

  • Kawhi Leonard’s top NBA Finals plays
  •  

  • Kyle Lowry funny moments and bloopers
  •  

  • Toronto Raptors top 5 plays from the season
  •  

  • 2019 NBA Finals Game 6 – 4th quarter countdown
  •  

  • Serge Ibaka fundraiser
  •  

  • Norman Powell sign-off
  •  

  • Toronto Raptors nostalgia         
  •  

 

The championship film will be available in three formats: Blu-ray™ Combo, DVD, and Digital. Across Canada, Walmart, Sunrise Records, Best Buy, the NBA Store and Amazon will carry the film. The digital version will be available on iTunes, Amazon Video, Google Play, Xbox and VUDU.

Runtime is 80 mins + bonus features.
