Phaedra gets to ‘Kiss & Tell’

Arthouse distributor Phaedra Cinema has acquired the rights to Jordan Alan’s indie production “Kiss & Tell,” a black comedy about a series of murders set in Los Angeles and featuring a cast of familiar Hollywood film and television actors. The film is completed and set for platformed release in September.

The ensemble cast includes Justine Bateman, Rose McGowan, Peter Greene, Heather Graham, David Faustino, Lukas Haas and no fewer than four Arquettes — dad Lewis, and kids Alexis, David and Richmond.

As in his earlier efforts, Alan directed “Kiss & Tell” without a script, developing the story through improvisational rehearsals with the actors. The story kicks off with a homicide that’s been committed with a bizarre murder weapon — an assault with a deadly carrot.

Alan produced the feature along with Pamela Gidley, who acts in the film, and Ron Travisano.

Alan previously directed the feature “Love and Happiness.” He made his “Terminal Bliss” at the age of 21.

Phaedra has also acquired U.S. distribution rights to “Sleepyheads,” the directorial debut of cinematographer Yoshifumi Hosoya, and “Gonin,” the hit Japanese gangster film.
