Freestyle Digital Media, the digital film distribution division of Byron Allen’s Entertainment Studios, has acquired the domestic rights to DANGER ONE, a dark comedy/action film directed by Tom Oesch and written by Steffen Schlachtenhaufen. DANGER ONE was produced by Mythmaker Productions (who also produced the slasher thriller Reaper and the hit real estate satire Pocket Listing) and Silvatar Media (who also produced the horror thriller The Pyramid and the spine-tingler Removal). Producers include Dwjuan Fox, Naji Jurdi, Mark James, James Jurdi, Bradley A. Jabour, Michael S. Klein, Victor Najjarian, Saud Shawwaf, Chady Eli Mattar, Scott C. Silver, and David Willing. It stars Tom Everett Scott, James Jurdi, Angélica Celaya, Damon Dayoub, and Denis O’Hare. The film will hit select theaters nationwide on September 14th, 2018.
DANGER ONE follows two paramedics, Dean (Scott) and Eric (Jurdi), who are both facing long hours, tough situations, and low pay. When they get a 911 call that leads them to discover a million dollars sewn into the clothes of a dying man, erratic Dean persuades reluctant Eric to keep the money. When their colleagues, the dangerously seductive Brie (Celaya) and the temperamental fireman Max (Dayoub) learn of the matter, things grow even more complicated as internal greed, betrayal, and double crosses ensue. As twists, turns, and mayhem increase, Dean and Eric soon discover that in the emergency call business, life or death situations are only one call away.
The deal was negotiated by Miguel Johnson, Acquisitions Manager of Freestyle, and by Mythmaker Productions.
“This is a fun, dark and inventive thriller fused with dark comedy and a terrific ensemble cast,” said Freestyle’s Johnson. “With broad domestic and international appeal, we couldn’t be more excited to bring this film to North American audiences.”
DANGER ONE will also be released on all digital platforms on September 14th.
