INSIDE WORD | Kino Getting "Momma's Man" From ThinkFilm

By Indiewire | Indiewire June 26, 2008 at 9:56AM

Azazel Jacobs's "Momma's Man," a hit at this year's Sundance Film Festival, is instead being released by Kino International after the filmmakers' deal with ThinkFilm evaporated in the wake of financial problems at Think. According to insiders, without a signed contract, the filmmakers returned to Kino, a company that pursued the movie back in Park City. Kino is intending to stick with the film's original August 22nd release date at the Angelika Film Center and other NYC theaters. A formal announcement is expected tomorrow (Friday). Meanwhile, a ThinkFilm email message to journalists today referred inquiries about the film to Kino. [Eugene Hernandez]
