Lionsgate and its Grindstone Entertainment Group have extended their partnership with Emmett/Furla Films for another 10 movies.
The deal will cover “Bus 657,” starring Robert DeNiro and Kate Bosworth; CIA action thriller “The Extraction,” starring Bruce Willis, Kellan Lutz and Gina Carano; and the thriller “Daughter of God,” starring Keanu Reeves and Mira Sorvino.
Grindstone handles about 30 movies annually, and its titles do not usually receive a theatrical release. EFF was founded in 1998 by Randall Emmett and George Furla.
Previous titles from Grindstone and EFF include “Fire With Fire,” starring Willis with Josh Duhamel and Rosario Dawson; “Empire State,” starring Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson and Liam Hemsworth; and serial killer thriller “Frozen Ground” with Nicolas Cage and John Cusack.
Several films from the Grindstone collaboration with EFF will be released through Lionsgate’s new Premiere specialty distribution label, starting with “The Extraction.”
