Freestyle takes 'Frankie,' 'Cell' for U.S.
Licenses two titles from Canada's Cinesavvy
CANNES -- U.S. indie Freestyle Releasing has picked up U.S. theatrical distribution on two titles from Canada's Cinesavvy: Geoffrey Sax's "Frankie and Alice" starring Halle Berry and Stellan Skarsgard and the horror thriller "Cell 213," directed by Stephen Kay ("Boogeyman").
In "Frankie and Alice," Berry, who also produced, plays a 70s go-go dancer suffering from multiple personality disorder. Cinesavvy is shilling the title as a comeback performance for the Oscar-winning actress, last seen in Susanne Bier's "Things We Lost in the Fire" (2007).
Freestyle is planning a fall bow for both titles. Checkmark Films will bankroll P&A for the releases. Freestyle's recent titles include Richard Linklater's "Me and Orson Welles," starring Zac Efron and the Matt Czuchry starrer "I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell."
