Freestyle Digital Media, the Digital Film Distribution division of Byron Allen’s Entertainment Studios, has acquired the domestic rights to BREAKING & EXITING, a dark comedy/romance that highlights the world of suicide prevention, which is the directorial debut of Peter Facinelli (who portrayed Dr. Cullen in the TWILIGHT SAGA). The film stars Milo Gibson, in his first leading role, and Jordan Hinson, who also wrote the original screenplay, and Adam Huber, and was produced by the all-female trio of Martine Melloul, for Kali Pictures, Cecile Cubilo and Hinson. Andrew van den Houten is executive producing, along with Melloul. The film will be available in theaters and on digital platforms on August 17th, 2018 and DVD on September 18, 2018.
The deal was negotiated by Rachel Koehler, Director, Acquisitions for Freestyle, and by Andrew van den Houten of 79th & Broadway Entertainment on behalf of the filmmakers.
Harry (Gibson), a charming house thief, gets more than he bargains for during an attempted burglary when he stumbles upon Daisy (Hinson) and decides to save her from herself, sending both of them into a darkly comedic journey of self-discovery and love.
“This is a dark and inventive comedy from a savvy producing team that puts the spotlight on suicide prevention. It’s a timely topic that has been handled smartly under Peter’s direction. We couldn’t be more pleased to bring this film to North American audiences,” said Freestyle’s Koehler.
