ACSX Film & TV Division Backs Emmy Nominated Film Franchise and Opens Liberty Village Office

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 28, 2014) - John G. Simmonds, Chairman and CEO of A. C. Simmonds and Sons Inc. (the "Company") (OTCQB:ACSX), is pleased to announce the Company's film and television division, Boulevard Entertainment Group ("BLVD"), is executive producing the film sequel Against The Wild 2: Survive The Serengeti and moving into new offices in Toronto's media and high-tech district.

"We are delighted to be involved with the sequel of Richard Boddington's Against The Wild film series," said John Simmonds. "Against The Wild 1 (ATW1) is a terrific film for the entire family and tells the story of two kids and their devoted dog who become lost in the wilderness when their small plane has engine problems and must make an emergency landing. It was among the most successful Canadian family films of 2014 and has been nominated for an international Emmy Award from among more than 200 contenders."

"We chose to produce Against The Wild 2: Survive The Serengeti (ATW2) because of its excellent business plan and film package," said Don Fenton, CEO of BLVD. "The film is backed by distributors Anchor Bay in North America and DARO in Europe and the rest of the world. The Canadian and South African co-production will be entitled to receive reciprocal tax credits and RBC, one of Canada's big six chartered banks, will be providing interim financing. The film has all of the original appeal of ATW1 except that the wilderness of North America has been replaced by the wilds of South Africa, lions and elephants." Executive Producer Marc Swenker says, "the sequel will be ATW1 on steroids."

Against The Wild 2: Survive The Serengeti will be available in 2015 on DVD from leading retail stores in North America and through VOD and television broadcast in major international markets.
