AFM: Juice Worldwide Takes Sales on 'Pretend We're Kissing' (Exclusive)
The indie romancer, starring Zoe Kravitz, is directed by 'Power Rangers SPD' star Matt Sadowski
Juice Worldwide has acquired world sale rights to Pretend We're Kissing, the debut feature from Matt Sadowski, best known for his role in Power Rangers SPD.
The film sees Dov Tiefenbach play Benny, a nebbishy character who struggles to make a real romantic connection, while Tommie-Amber Pirie is Jordan, a girl hell-bent on proving magical love can exist. Zoe Kravitz (Divergent) plays Autumn, an unemployed, bisexual hippie who is also a self-diagnosed agoraphobic.
Pretend We’re Kissing is produced by Peter Harvey and executive produced by Mark Montefiore and Sean Buckley. Ahead of the Canadian indie having its world premiere at the Whistler Film Festival next month, A71 Entertainment grabbed the Canadian sales rights at AFM.
"We are so thrilled to have Juice and A71 on board with our film,” Sadowski said in a statement on Wednesday. The sales deals were negotiated by Harvey, Juice Worldwide and A71 Entertainment.
