Regent Releasing Takes Worldwide Rights to "Freshman Orientation"

Regent Releasing has acquired the worldwide rights to Ryan Shiraki‘s comedy “Freshman Orientation,” with Regent Worldwide Sales handling international sales at this year’s American Film Market (AFM). The film, produced by Element Films, will be released in Spring 2007. The film centers on a typical Midwestern 18-year-old freshman (Sam Huntington) at a large state university eager to begin his wild college party life, but he instead discovers that school is not the beer-driven, sexual fantasy of his imagination. Determined to do anything to win over a beautiful sorority girl, he decides to pose as gay in order to entrench himself in her life. “Regent Releasing is thrilled to be working with the talented Ryan Shiraki and the creative forces at Element Films to bring ‘Freshman Orientation’ to theatres nationwide,” commented Mark Reinhart, Regent’s EVP of distribution and acquisitions in a statement. “This sharp and witty comedy is a welcome addition to our
growing 2007 slate of quality film projects.” [Brian Brooks]
