Quartet launches film prod'n, distrib'n firm

Helmer Randall Miller among company's creators

More Sundance coverage

"Bottle Shock" director Randall Miller and his producing partner Jody Savin have joined with Leonidas Films' Timothy Cavanaugh and James Mancuso to launch Consolidated Pictures Group, which plans to finance and produce two films this year and pick up two other films to release theatrically.

Miller and Savin self-distributed "Bottle Shock," which used Freestyle Releasing to book theaters and grossed $4.5 million domestically. It will be released on DVD on Feb. 3 by Fox Home Entertainment.

The team also used the same approach to releasing "Nobel Son" last year.

Consolidated, funded with privated equity, will be attending the Sundance Film Festival.
