‘Greek’ guide

Former Sony marketing topper Paula Silver’s Beyond the Box shingle, will consult on the release. Silver oversaw the marketing for “My Big Fat Greek Wedding,” among other pics.

Pritzger said Odd Lot is looking to fill a void in indie distribution. “When analyzing the marketing and release plans of several companies interested in ‘Green Street Hooligans,’ we realized they were all focused on the traditional arthouse platform release,” she said. “but we knew with certainty that our film appeals to a broader audience and needed appropriate commercial marketing.”

Odd Lot Entertainment and Hyde Park Entertainment recently announced plans to produce and co-finance “Trap for Cinderella,” directed by Iain Softley.
