Etchie Stroh of Moonstone Entertainment and Jay Firestone are partnering on Prestige Films, focusing on distribution of features plus a combined catalog of more than 50 films from their respective libraries.
Prestige plans to present a range of pics in various genres and budget ranges. Shingle will make its debut at Cannes with two films going into production in the fall:
- “Rock ‘n’ Roll Nanny,” written and to be directed by Dana Lustig (“Wedding Bell Blues,” “Kill Me Later”) is the story of a washed-up rocker who ends up as the nanny in the house of his ex-groupie.
- “The Thing on the Doorstep,” to be directed by Stuart Gordon (“Stuck,” “Edmond”) and based on the novel by H.P. Lovecraft, follows a psychologist in his dealings with a patient who seems to be stuck in an “out of body” experience involving an ancient curse.
