It’s the third acquisition that Alchemy has announced this week. The company acquired worldwide rights to director Mitch Dickman’s marijuana documentary “Rolling Papers” on March 16 following its premiere at South by Southwest.
Earlier in the festival Alchemy picked up Antoine Bardou-Jacquet’s action-comedy “Moonwalkers,” starring Ron Perlman, Rupert Grint and Robert Sheehan.
The company specializes in independent distribution and owns a catalog of 665 titles. It rebranded itself late last year, changing its name from Millennium Entertainment to Alchemy.
