EXCLUSIVE: Industry vets Mark Lindsay, Marina Grasic and Jan Korbelin have launched Cargo Entertainment, a company that will be affiliated with Curious Pictures and will finance, produce and run foreign sales for independent films. The company is launching at AFM with a first project. In The Blood, an action revenge thriller that will be directed by John Stockwell, will begin production in Puerto Rico in the spring.
