Shangri-La wraps first Web-only pic

Online is 'viable medium,' says helmer

Shangri-La Entertainment has completed production on “Girl Walks into a Bar,” the first major motion picture created exclusively for web distribution.

Pic, helmed and scripted by Sebastian Gutierrez, follows a series of characters in interlocking stories over the course of an evening in Los Angeles.

Ensemble cast includes Carla Gugino, Zachary Quinto, Danny DeVito, Josh Hartnett and Rosario Dawson.

“We want to prove that Web distribution is a viable medium for theatrical-quality movies which rely on story, characters and dialogue as opposed to special effects,” said Gutierrez.

Steve Bing, Richard Rosenblatt and Gutierrez produce with co-producer Zach Schwartz of Shangri-La.

Shangri-La plans to announce date and distribution shortly.
