Symphony ready to roll out ‘Hits’

Symphony Pictures plans to take the James Marshall/Martin Sheen starrer “Hits” out to distributors in six weeks, company president William R. Greenblatt said Monday.

It marks the first of three $ 2 million-$ 3 million movies that the 10 -year-old indie development and production company plans to make by the end of 1994.

“Hits,” a dark comedy described as a cross between “GoodFellas” and “48 HRS., ” marks the debut of producer-turned-director Greenblatt. Shot in New York, the pic was written by Jeff Monahan and Luke Toma.

This year, Symphony secured financing for the three-pic slate from six New York investors headed by Beck’s beer importer Walter Driscoll and attorney Ron Barnhard. Symphony plans to start production on its second title in the first quarter of 1994.

With the financial partners in tow, Greenblatt said Symphony is exploring the possibility of self distributing “Hits” as its first foray into the theatrical distribution business.
