Homevid supplier Ardustry Home Entertainment is getting into the theatrical distrib biz this spring with the pickup of “Now and Forever.”
Starring Mia Kirshner (“The L Word”), “Now & Forever” focuses on a love story born out of a wicked act of betrayal. “Baby Genius” helmer Bob Clark directed the film, which also stars Adam Beach.
Ardustry, which releases a wide array of DVD premiere movies and programs since its launch in 2002, acquired theatrical and DVD rights to “Now and Forever” from Canadian-based Peace Arch Entertainment, which retains all domestic TV rights.
Shoreline, a Peace Arch production partner, will manage “Now & Forever” internationally.
