The film, starring Selma Blair, Jordan Gelber and Justin Bartha, marks the company’s first foray into theatrical distribution.
Brainstorm Media has acquired Todd Solondz’s Dark Horse and plans to distribute the film theatrically.
Brainstorm, the Beverly Hills-based sales agent and distributor headed by president Meyer Shwarzstein that specializes in aggregating indie films for video-on-demand and new media, has put together a team to handle the movie’s June 8 release in New York, followed by openings in additional cities. It will mark Brainstorm’s entry into theatrical distribution.
The company has enlisted Ruth Vitale, who runs the consultancy The Film Collective; Vitagraph Films president David Shultz and head of marketing, publicity and digital strategy Margot Gerber; Barbara Javitz, who has held executive positions at ARC Entertainment and Lightning Entertainment; and Marian Koltai-Levine of PMK*BNC.
