No place like ‘Home’ for DEJ bigscreen bow

Christensen, Phillips pic to unspool this fall

DEJ Prods., Blockbuster’s film acquisition/distribution shingle, is charging into bigscreen territory for the first time with the drama “Home Room.”

The 3-year-old company, known heretofore as the biggest buyer of films for video release, will unspool the pic this fall, with the DVD/VHS release planned for the fourth quarter.

“Home Room” stars Erika Christensen and Busy Phillips as acquaintances who bond after surviving a high school shooting.

Acquisition broadens DEJ’s scope. It recently dropped its genre-specific labels — it now operates more as an unrestricted indie — and has expanded its operations to the U.K.

DEJ also has emerged as one of the most active buyers at the Sundance Film Festival over the past few years.

Company’s most recent high-profile acquisitions for video include “Eye See You,” starring Sylvester Stallone, and “Harvard Man,” starring Sarah Michelle Gellar. It also had a significant investment in the Independent Spirit Award nominee “Dahmer.”
