Lot 47 lands distribution to ‘Runway’

Script won award at L.A.'s indy fest

Jeff Lipsky’s Gotham-based Lot 47 Films has acquired North American distribution rights to Christopher Livingston’s comedy “Hit and Runway,” winner of the best screenplay award at the 1999 Los Angeles Independent Film Festival and this year’s U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, Colo. The ’00 L.A. fest kicked off on April 13.

Lot 47 plans to release the pic early next year.

“Hit and Runway” concerns a gay Jewish playwright and an Italian restaurant-owning family who find themselves partners by necessity on the penning of an original script for a macho star. Written by Jaffe Cohen and Livingston, pic stars Michael Parducci, Peter Jacobson, Judy Prescott and Kerr Smith. It was produced by Andrew Charas, Chris D’Annibale and Livingston.

“Chris’ hilarious and touching movie is a pure independent American film,” said Lipsky. “It completes the perfect profile for Lot 47 Films.”

The company recently acquired Aiyana Elliott’s award-winning docu “The Ballad of Ramblin’ Jack” and Tonie Marshall’s “Venus Beauty Institute.”

Lipsky negotiated the distribution deal with Livingston and attorney Todd Stern of Weissmann, Wolff, Bergman, Coleman & Silverman.
