Ryan Harris, Brenden Patrick Hill, Christine Holder, Mark Holder and Benito Mueller produced Walter and Bill Johnson, Jennifer Laurent, Michel Merkt and Wolfgang Mueller executive produced. A day and date theatrical/VOD release is planned for the spring. EOne’s Katharyn Howe negotiated the deal with CAA on behalf of the filmmakers. Beta Cinema will rep the film’s international rights at AFM next month.
