BROAD GREEN PICTURES BOARDS ‘VILLA CAPRI’ STARRING MORGAN FREEMAN AND TOMMY LEE JONES AS U.S. DISTRIBUTOR AND CO-PRODUCER 

Film Set for Nationwide Release August 25, 2017

Broad Green Pictures has finalized a deal to distribute Academy Award nominee Ron Shelton’s Villa Capri starring  Academy Award® winners Morgan Freeman (Now You See Me 2, Unforgiven, Lucy) and Tommy Lee Jones (Jason BourneThe Fugitive, JFK) in the United States and to co-produce the film with Entertainment One (eOne), Billy Gerber and Endurance’s Steve Richards.  John Mass and Alan Simpson are executive producers on the film. The movie will be released nationwide just ahead of the Labor Day weekend on August 25, 2017 and is slated to begin principal photography in New Mexico this summer. 

Villa Capri, is a two-hander action comedy, in the vein of Midnight Run about an ex-FBI agent (Jones) and an ex-mob lawyer in the witness protection program (Freeman) having to put aside their petty rivalry on the golf course to fend off a mob hit. 

It was previously announced that the film is being financed by eOne and Endurance Media. eOne will directly distribute the action comedy in Canada, the UK, Australia/New Zealand, Benelux and Spain. Sierra/Affinity is handling foreign sales for the remaining international rights at the 2016 Cannes Film Market.  

A Labor Day targeted opening has proven successful for Broad Green in the past.  In September 2015, the studio successfully opened the comedy adventure A Walk in the Woods about two friends (played by Robert Redford and Nick Nolte) who make the improbable decision to hike the 2,190-mile Appalachian Trail. The film outperformed expectations, grossing nearly $30 million. 

President of Acquisitions and Co-Productions Marc Danon negotiated the deal on behalf of Broad Green Pictures.  

Freeman and Jones are both represented by CAA. Shelton is managed by Oasis Media Group.
