Vision pacakge unveiled for market

Vision Intl. chairman Mark Damon jump-started the American Film Market with his annual luncheon/sales preview Wednesday at the DC3 restaurant. Outlining the company’s 18 films on offer, he prefaced his remarks to potential buyers by saying, “We like to think we’re supporting you.

But support has to be mutual.”

Among the titles are six projects receiving their market debut. The juggernaut of the package is “Men of War,” an action/adventure tale to star Dolph Lundgren based on a John Sayles screenplay. Produced by Arthur Goldblatt and Moshe Diamant’s new Signature label, filming is planned for September in Thailand.

The other Vision debutantes are the canine sequel “Benji, Benji,” Daryl Hannah in the remake of ’50s schlocker “Attack of the 50-Foot Woman” and the thrillers “The Hit List,””Save Me” and “Night Eyes III: On Guard.”

Additionally, Damon introduced television producer Barney Rosenzweig, who announced he would be making a series for CBS in conjunction with Vision. He could say only that the project, which is in a very early stage of gestation, would be “in the action/adventure vein.”

The company recently concluded domestic theatrical deals on two films — the $ 30 million-plus Franco-Canadian Eskimo epic “Shadow of the Wolf” with Lou Diamond Phillips and the moppet martial arts film “Sidekicks”– which will go out via Triumph Releasing. Damon has been a longtime Triumph supplier. “Shadow” has a domestic release date of March 5 and “Sidekicks” follows on April 30.
