Wrekin Hill Entertainment along with NECA Films announced today they have acquired US rights to STUCK BETWEEN STATIONS, a new drama from director Brady Kiernan featuring standout performances by rising indie stars Sam Rosen (THE ORANGES) and Zoe Lister-Jones (BREAKING UPWARDS), and supported by Michael Imperioli ("The Sopranos") and Josh Hartnett (BLACK HAWK DOWN). The film is written by Nat Bennett and Sam Rosen, and produced by Todd Cobery, Spencer Kiernan, Sam Rosen and Brady Kiernan.
Casper, a young soldier home on leave, has a chance run-in with his childhood crush, now a grad student coping with conflicts of her own. In one night, the two traverse a striking Minneapolis cityscape, growing closer but knowing they will inevitably have to part ways at dawn.
Wrekin Hill is releasing STUCK BETWEEN STATIONS theatrically at Brooklyn's ReRun Theater on November 4th and in Minneapolis at St. Anthony Main Theater December 16th, with further dates TBA. The film will be available on DVD and VOD through Lionsgate in March of 2012.
"STUCK BETWEEN STATIONS features wonderful performances from Sam Rosen and Zoe Lister-Jones and they are perfectly complimented by the rest of the cast," said Wrekin Hill Entertainment's President and CEO Chris Ball. "The filmmakers have skillfully created a terrific film and we're proud to be bringing it to theatres."
The deal was negotiated for Wrekin Hill by Chief Operating Officer Rene Cogan, with Kevin Iwashina and Christine D'Souza of Preferred Content working on behalf of the filmmakers.
