TORONTO, April 29, 2014 /CNW/ - CineCoup's WolfCop heads to Cannes this May represented by Raven Banner Entertainment, who recently acquired the world sales rights to the film. Just one-year since it was green-lit for production at the 2013 Banff World Media Festival, WolfCop – a horror action comedy written and directed by Regina's Lowell Dean and produced by Bernie Hernando and Hugh Patterson - is set to release across Canada through Cineplex theatres beginning June 6, 2014.
"Raven Banner's connections and impressive track record securing global distribution for innovative and cutting edge genre films will give WolfCop the edge it deserves," says Brad Pelman, CineCoup President, Distribution and Sales. "They are the ideal company to be introducing WolfCop to the international marketplace at Cannes."
Raven Banner's Managing Partners, Michael Paszt, James Fler and Andrew T. Hunt negotiated the WolfCop deal with Brad Pelman and J Joly of CineCoup Media. Pelman will work directly with Raven Banner to facilitate sales and evangelize the CineCoup platform to international buyers while at Cannes.
"Lowell and his team leveraged CineCoup's social web platform to find an international audience for WolfCop," says Raven Banner Managing Partner, Michael Paszt. "Combine that with its horror genre appeal and movie merch potential and WolfCop is an attractive package to many markets."
