Boilermaker Entertainment Sign Multi-Picture Deal With Arclight Films
Independent production company, Boilermaker Entertainment, has signed a multi-picture deal with global media company Arclight Films, announced today by Louis Shaw Milito and Phil Conserva, co-founders of Boilermaker Entertainment.
Under the pact, Boilermaker Entertainment and Arclight Films will develop and produce a minimum of four films over the course of five years. The first project to come out of the partnership will be based on the award-winning, female-fueled sci-fi novel, ISAN: International Sensory Assassin Network, written by Mary Ting. The deal was brokered by Alan Brown, who will executive produce along with Italia Gandolfo of Vesuvian Media Group. Milito, Conserva and Gary Hamilton of Arclight Films will serve as producers.
"We're delighted to be partnering with Gary and Arclight Films who have a proven track-record of making captivating movies. The story and content of ISAN is compelling with its dystopian setting where truth struggles to be heard and women kick ass. We're looking forward to bringing this timely and inspiring project, among others, to the big screen," commented Milito and Conserva.
"This is just the start of a relationship where I see no boundaries to our collaboration and business plans," said Hamilton. "Louis and Phil have a solid reputation in the industry making this partnership the natural next step between our companies. I look forward to a fruitful collaboration with Boilermaker and together producing exceptional films with mass appeal and worldwide box office potential."
