Shoreline rises for pic duo

Co. gains rights to Clark-helmed love story, Spirer crime drama

Shoreline Entertainment has picked up international sales rights on dramas “Dunsmore” and “Now and Forever” under the company’s Watermark label at Cannes.

“Now and Forever,” helmed by Bob Clark and starring Mia Kirshner, Adam Beach and Theresa Russell, is the story of a love affair overshadowed by dark secrets and a community’s deep-seated prejudice.

Based on a true story, crime drama “Dunsmore,” helmed by documaker Peter Spirer, chronicles a small Florida town tormented by a deeply repellent individual. Kadeem Hardison, Rus Blackwell and Talia Shire headline the cast, with W. Earl Brown as the despised murder victim.

Watermark’s first original production, “Marilyn Hotchkiss’ Ballroom Dancing and Charm School,” is filming in Los Angeles. Ensemble cast includes Robert Carlyle, Marisa Tomei, John Goodman, Mary Steenburgen, Sean Astin, David Paymer, Sonia Braga, Donnie Wahlberg and Danny DeVito.

Watermark’s recent acquisitions include critically acclaimed Canadian drama “The Bay of Love and Sorrows,” Hungarian comedy “A Kind of Amerika” and the Mexican heist film “Real Time,” shot in one continuous take.
