John Hawkes, Jaime King Crime Drama ‘The Pardon’ Acquired By Monterey Media

Monterey Media has acquired U.S. and Canada rights to The Pardon, which follows the true story of Toni Jo Henry (Jaime King), a woman tried three times and executed in 1942 Louisiana.  After her dashing boxer husband Cowboy Henry (Jason Lewis) is sent to prison, Toni Jo embarks on an ill-fated mission with Cowboy’s partner Arkie (Oscar-nominated actor John Hawkes).  A grisly murder and a series of sensational trials where Toni Jo pleads her innocence instantly turn her into a celebrity of the day.  The Pardon is directed by Tom Anton and was co-written by Sandi Russell and Anton.  The acquisition deal was negotiated between Shoreline Entertainment’s Sam Eigen & Brian Sweet, and Monterey Media’s Scott Mansfield. A late spring theatrical release is planned.
