A TRUE STORY to Hit Theaters 10/25; Set for VOD Release this Friday
Freestyle Releasing and Freestyle Digital Media (FDM) announced today that they have set October 25th, 2013 for a multi city theatrical release for A TRUE STORY, the coming-of-age comedy directed by Malcolm Goodwin (star of A & E's "Breakout Kings"). The film introduces Cameron Fife and Tyler McGee, who also co-wrote the script, and includes Katrina Bowden ("30 Rock," AMERICAN REUNION), Kelen Coleman ("The Mindy Project," "The Newsroom"), Keith Loneker (LAKEVIEW TERRACE) and Jon Gries (NAPOLEON DYNAMITE). The film was produced by Goodwin, Fife and McGee, and is slated for a multiple platform VOD release prior to the national theatrical roll out on September 20th, 2013.
"When friends get together on a project it becomes about something more than work," said director/star Malcolm Goodwin, "Working with our team and Freestyle to see A True Story in theaters and on every digital platform has been a great experience."
The film concerns Mike and Matt (Fife and McGee), two broke writing partners and best friends, waiting for their big break. When Mike's ex-girlfriend Deanna (Bowden) comes back into his life, Matt will do anything to save his only friend from another broken heart. A TRUE STORY is a film within a film...within a film, as we see the less glamorous side of Hollywood. The story is not, however, inclusive to the LA scene. It's a story about resisting temptation, maintaining integrity, and keeping track of what's really important in life: the people that really love you and would do anything for you, however imperfect they might be.
Recent Freestyle Digital Media titles include the SXSW festival favorite FUNERAL KINGS from the McManus Brothers, the critically-acclaimed documentary Samsara from filmmakers Ron Fricke and Mark Magidson, and TIGER EYES, the first big screen adaptation of a Judy Blume novel, starring Willa Holland.
