Lions Gate Intl. threw a relaxed and informal cocktail party Saturday night for around 150 people at Palm Square to celebrate its latest pickup “The Prince and the Freshmen” with international buyers.
Pic, which was acquired for release in the U.K., Australia and New Zealand by Icon Entertainment, saw cast members Julia Stiles and Luke Mably and film’s director Martha Coolidge freely mingling with fest attendees and giving a quick presentation about pic. Eagle Pictures also picked up Italian distribution rights.
Actor Ben Miller who has also recently joined the cast was also in attendance with Sobini Films’ Mark Amin who is producing pic and Lions Gate Films Intl.’s co-prexys Sergei Yershov and Nick Meyer. Sobini has entered an agreement with Paramount who will handle the pic’s U.S. release.
