Castle Hill sandwiches in ‘Deli’ pic

Fest winner to go to Mip TV 2000 in Cannes

NEW YORK — Castle Hill Prods. has acquired international distribution rights to John Andrew Gallagher’s “The Deli.”

Pic received the Spirit of Independents Award at the Ft. Lauderdale Intl. Film Festival, while the National Board of Review noted the film for excellence in filmmaking.

“Deli’s” ensemble cast includes Michael Imperioli, Tony Sirico and Vincent Pastore, all of “The Sopranos”; Michael Badalucco (“The Practice”); Chris Noth (“Sex and the City”); Jerry Stiller (“The King of Queens”); Gretchen Mol (“Rounders”); Mike Starr (“Dumb and Dumber”); Matthew Keeslar (“Scream 3”); Debi Mazar (“The Insider”) and Heather Matarazzo (“Welcome to the Dollhouse”).

Gambling addiction

Penned by Gallagher and John Dorrian, pic centers around an Italian-American New York deli whose owner is addicted to gambling. It follows the customers who patronize the deli during the course of one weekend.

Golden Monkey Pictures, in association with Caminer-Gallagher Prods., produced the pic; exec producer Dorrian originally self-distributed the film theatrically in select cities in 1997. After it acquired cult status, Castle Hill acquired the pic’s rights and will bring it to the upcoming Mip TV 2000 in Cannes.

Int’l ‘Doe’ rights

Castle Hill Prods. also recently acquired international distribution rights to “Jane Doe,” starring Calista Flockhart. A multifaceted company that distributes and produces films, Castle Hill will release “Seven Girlfriends,” featuring Tim Daly and Mimi Rogers, in April.

Arthur Schweitzer, VP of international sales, repped the deal on Castle Hill’s behalf.
