ClickStar embraces 'Lonely Hearts'


NEW YORK -- Online day-and-date movie website ClickStar has closed its second major deal, acquiring broadband rights to Todd Robinson's true crime thriller "Lonely Hearts," starring John Travolta, James Gandolfini and Salma Hayek.

The film will be available online just two weeks after its Apr. 13 U.S. theatrical opening. ClickStar founders Intel Corporation and actor Morgan Freeman and Lori McCreary's Revelations Entertainment had their first release last December, Brad Silberling's "10 Items Or Less" starring Freeman. It was distributed theatrically by ThinkFilm but made only $81,000 in theaters. Download income figures were not available.

ClickStar interim CEO James Ackerman negotiated the deal with producer/financier Avi Lerner's Millennium Films.
