Trident spears foreign on ‘Sings,’ ‘Paradise’

Trident Releasing has acquired all foreign rights to two new films, adding to its AFM slate.

Films include the romantic comedy “Fool’s Paradise,” starring Corey Parker (“Biloxi Blues”) and Leslie Stefanson (“The Mirror Has Two Faces”), to premiere at the AFM. Trident also picked up “Frankenstein Sings” (aka “Monster Mash”), starring Candice Cameron (TV’s “Full House”), Ian Bohen (“Wyatt Earp”) and Mink Stole (“Hairspray”).

“Fool’s Paradise” is produced and directed by Richard Zakka, who penned the project with Daniel Faraldo. Pic deals with a commodities broker with a huge gambling debt who goes to work for the government on assignment to the Caribbean, where, instead of scamming some money and bagging some rays, he falls for a Peace Corps worker.

“Frankenstein Sings” was written and directed by Joel Cohen and Alec Sokolow (the scribes behind Disney’s “Toy Story”) and produced by Michael Kate. Pic is a comedy in the vein of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” about a couple trapped in a haunted mansion on the way to a Halloween party. They subsequently try to sing and dance an escape from their ghoulish hosts.

The two-pic acquisition was negotiated by Trident co-president Victoria Plummer and New York attorney Donna Bascom.
