Exciting new distribution company, Neon, nabbed the SXSW title Gemini, which means you should immediately put this on your radar.
Neon isn’t fucking around, already acquiring Nacho Vigalondo’s widely praised monster movie Colossal (review), which will open in theaters on April 7, 2017.
The two men behind Neon know their shit; Radius co-founder Tom Quinn and Alamo Drafthouse owner Tim League will distribute the film that made its world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival.
Quinn, who was head of acquisition for Magnolia Pictures, was also the Radius executive who acquired and helped champion the horror classic It Follows. League is not only the owner of Alamo Drafthouse, but is also behind all sorts of important things in our pop culture, including the incredible Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas.
Aaron Katz’s Gemini is a Los Angeles mystery starring Lola Kirke, Zoe Kravitz, and John Cho. It centers on the relationship between a tenacious personal assistant (Kirke) and her Hollywood starlet boss (Kravitz). As the assistant travels across Los Angeles to unravel the mystery, she must stay one step ahead of a determined policeman, played by Cho.
