Wolfe Releasing has acquired domestic and international rights to “Four,” the debut feature film from director Joshua Sanchez, based on the play by Pulitzer Prize finalist playwright, Christopher Shinn. Wolfe plans to open the film theatrically this summer.
The film stars Wendell Pierce (“The Wire”) as Joe and Emory Cohen (“Smash”) as June. Joe is a black, middle-aged man who meets June, a white teenage boy, online. The pair decide to meet and go out on a date on the 4th of July. Unbeknownst to them, Joe’s daughter Abigayle, played by Aja Naomi King, is also out on a date that night with a basketball player named Dexter, played by E.J. Bonilla. As the night unfolds, the couples lives will change. All four of the film’s leads collectively won the acting award at last year’s Los Angeles Film Festival.
Wolfe president Maria Lynn said, “‘Four ‘is a powerful new American Indie. It’s full of the poetic and tender human drama of great theatre. We’re really proud to be releasing such an accomplished and beautiful film.”
