SIMON RUMLEY'S RED WHITE & BLUE TO GET UK THEATRICAL RELEASE




Simon Rumley’s controversial psycho-sexual thriller RED WHITE & BLUE is set for a UK theatrical and DVD release courtesy of UK distributor Trinity Filmed Entertainment.

One of the hits of last year’s festival circuit, Rumley’s red-hot, hard-edged drama, which garnered rave reviews, has been acquired from Celluloid Nightmares and will be released theatrically in May 2011 to coincide with the US DVD release, currently fixed for May 17. A DVD and Blu-ray release in the UK will follow in the summer.

Mark Sandell, co-director of the Brit indie distributor, said today: “We’re so pleased to have picked up the film from Celluloid Nightmares. Simon has created something visionary and brilliant but also challenging and raw. It’s a perfect film for us – unique and uncompromising”.

Simon Rumley added: “With films like ‘Enter The Void’ and ‘Import/Export,’ Trinity has constantly shown itself to be a company which isn't afraid to pick up challenging material and prove to the industry that there is a market for well made and provocative cinema. I'm very much looking forward to working with them on the theatrical release of ‘Red White & Blue’ for what I know will be a great experience for all involved.”

Mark Sandell negotiated the deal on behalf of Trinity and Nate Bolotin and Aram Tertzakian from Celluloid Nightmares on behalf of the filmmakers.

RED WHITE & BLUE, starring Amanda Fuller, Noah Taylor, and Marc Senter, is produced by Rumley and Bob Portal, and executive produced by Tim League, Judy Lipsey, Doug Abbott, and Adam Goldworm.

Erica (BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER’s Amanda Fuller) is a tough, troubled nymphomaniac with wounds across her soul.  For Erica, sleeping with multiple men forms the core of her life, until she meets the mysterious Iraq vet Nate (THE PROPOSITION’s Noah Taylor).  Despite his quiet air of danger, Nate's the only guy who doesn’t immediately want to sleep with her, and the two form a hesitant bond. But in a shocking twist, one of Erica's earlier sexual encounters, with wannabe rock star Franki (Marc Senter), will have unexpected - and devastating – consequences on both of their lives.
