R-Squared Films & Parker Entertainment Group Go for Ten

R-Squared Films & Parker Entertainment Group Sign a $20 Million Ten Picture Deal

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - March 3, 2011) - Distributor R-Squared Films and Parker Entertainment Group, in cooperation with Stand By Entertainment, have signed a foreign distribution deal that will see the two companies co-producing two to three feature films per year for the next four years. Christopher D. Parker of Parker Entertainment Group and Denise Smith of Stand By Entertainment brokered the deal with R-Squared president Buzz Remde. "We have worked with Mr. Parker in the past, and we would like to continue to work with young innovative producers that can bring fresh high quality content to market," said Buzz. Buzz and wife Robin Remde will serve as executive producers for all ten films.

"Our goal is to always produce high quality material and we have found a home that will allow our films to be seen by a foreign audience. We have always thought globally here at PEG," said Christopher D. Parker, PEG's CEO. The deal will produce films within the Action, Drama, Comedy, and Horror genres and allow filmmakers to realize their vision with minimum interference. "We intend to give the filmmakers plenty of space to deliver on their vision," adds Denise Smith of Stand By Entertainment and one of the driving forces for the deal.

"Ten films over four years is a lot of work but we are always up for challenges," quips John Harris II, Parker Entertainment Group head of development. "We have already identified a number of properties at the budget ranges we intend to work within, now that the deal is done it's just a matter of executing."

First up from the slate is an action thriller titled "Undeliverable" written by Gregory Parker, Christopher D. Parker, and Eric Burton, to be directed by Gregory Parker and scheduled to go before the lens this summer in Toronto, Canada. Independent filmmaker and PEG partner Rodney Allen Hooks has set up the slates second film, a yet untitled comedy, he wrote and will direct this fall.
