Phase 4 nabs rights to ‘Alter Egos’

Film to be released under 'SModcast Pictures Presents' banner

Phase 4 Films has acquired U.S. and Canadian rights to writer-director Jordan Galland’s superhero comedy “Alter Egos.”

The film will be released under the company’s new “Kevin Smith’s SModcast Pictures Presents” banner with a fall opening planned.

Pic will premiere July 24 at the Fantasia Film Festival. Film stars Kris Lemche, Brooke Nevin (“Breakout Kings”) and Joey Kern (“Super Troopers,” “Electric City”), with John Ventimiglia (“Sopranos”) and Danny Masterson (“That ’70s Show”) also starring.

Sean Lennon, who previously collaborated with Galland on the score of Galland’s film “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Undead,” contributed an original musical score and also plays a villain.

The film was produced by Jordan Galland, Carlos Velazquez, Dan Farah of Farah Films (“Armored”) and Milan Chakraborty of Attic Light Films. Ed Mcwilliams of Attic Light exec produced.

“Alter Egos” takes place in a world in which superheroes are real but have recently lost all government funding and public support. It centers on an underappreciated superhero who jeopardizes a dangerous mission with his own emotional crisis — his girlfriend is cheating on him with his Alter Ego.

The Phase 4 and SModcast Pictures’ distribution partnership, announced early this year, allows Phase 4 to acquire exclusive rights to exhibit and distribute up to 12 films per year under Smith’s banner.

The deal for “Alter Egos” was negotiated by Phase 4’s Larry Greenberg and Katharyn Howe with Maren Olson and Traction Media on behalf of the filmmakers. Galland is managed by Farah.
