Cinedigm Likes Humor and Action

Cinedigm Corp. announced this month that it had acquired the rights to distribute crime thriller “Devil’s Night: Dawn of the Nain Rouge” and the action comedy “All for Nikki.” The Sherman Oaks content distributor released “All for Nikki” on May 12 on digital, DVD and on-demand and will release “Devil’s Night” on June 23. The deal to distribute “Devil’s Night” was negotiated by Josh Thomashow, director of acquisitions at Cinedigm, with the film’s producing team, Sam Logan Khaleghi, Tel Ganesan and Jesse Dean Crawfis. Khaleghi, an Emmy nominee in 2010 and 2016, also directed and starred in the film alongside co-stars Jesi Jensen and Nathan Kane Mathers, the brother of Marshall Mathers, aka Eminem. Filmed in Detroit, where Khaleghi grew up, “Devil’s Night” follows a pair of police officers from a town being plagued by mysterious murders. As the evidence mounts up, they cannot deny the presence of a long-forgotten supernatural entity, the Nain Rouge, the city’s harbinger of doom. Khaleghi called the film an amalgam of mystery, action and drama with a dash of creature feature thrills. “I’m truly elated to be working with the team at Cinedigm as they take the reins on our urban legend from Motown and bring it to a larger audience,” Khaleghi said in a statement. Directed by Brandon Willer, “All for Nikki” is an action comedy following a band of unlikely criminals. A musician and the wife of a rock star find themselves the victims of a robbery by two paramedics in the Hollywood Hills which sends the group on a dark, hilarious adventure into the Los Angeles night. Yolanda Macias, executive vice president of acquisitions and digital sales at Cinedigm, said the film brings an adrenaline-fueled escape to those homebound during the coronavirus outbreak. “Clever, fast-paced and stylish, ‘All for Nikki’ takes viewers on an intense and hilarious thrill ride filled with memorable characters and outrageous plot twists,” Macias said in a statement.
