Greenwich Entertainment Sets Theatrical Release Of Documentary Feature “Hockeyland”

Greenwich Entertainment, a leading distributor of independent films, has acquired North American distribution rights to the critically-acclaimed documentary feature Hockeyland about rival high school hockey teams in Minnesota’s North Country, one of the breeding grounds for hockey greats who go onto to collegiate and professional play, including the National Hockey League (NHL).

Greenwich Entertainment has set a September 9 theatrical release for the film, starting in Minneapolis and other Midwest cities, before expanding in the U.S. and Canada. A digital release will follow in October.

Hockeyland is directed by Tommy Haines, produced by Tommy Haines, Andrew Sherburne, and JT Haines, and executive produced by Carson Kipfer. The film has played leading documentary film festivals including DOC NYC, Big Sky, Seattle, Milwaukee, RiverRun and more.

Here’s the official description of the film:
Northern Minnesota is felt in the bones. The deep chill of a long winter, the toll of a day in the mine, bruises from the hockey rink. But times they are a changin’, and toughness is no longer the only measure of a man. In this unforgiving country, senior boys in rival communities—one emerging dynasty, one with a fabled past—skate for a last chance to etch their names into local lore. Lightning fast on-ice action is paired with a patient observational approach to examine these two communities and their teen heroes through debilitating injuries, off-ice troubles, family health concerns, and the expectations of being a future star in the NHL. These boys must keep small-town pressures, adolescent distractions, and rising testosterone under control to pursue glory with the help of their coaches’ traditional fiery speeches and new mindfulness techniques. In America’s far reaches, this is a portrait of young men on the brink. This is Hockeyland.

Matteo Pizzolo’s Godkiller To Be Developed As A Video Game Starring “The Boys” Aya Cash

Matteo Pizzolo Godkiller To Be Developed As A Video GameAya Cash (The Boys, You’re the Worst) will take on the voice role of a god-hunting dark witch in the narrative-videogame adaptation of beloved, bestselling comic series Godkiller by writer Matteo Pizzolo (Calexit) and artist Anna Wieszczyk (Home). Pizzolo, who penned the screenplay adaptation of his Calexit comic that sold in a 5-studio bidding war and is currently producing the feature adaptation of Black at Warner Bros., will write the adaptation.

Following her role as the villain Stormfront on The Boys, Cash will perform the Godkiller role of Bones, an anti-hero sorcerer who survives her world’s descent into dystopia and leads a vendetta against the cruel men and strange deities responsible for the end of the world.

Produced by Emmy-winner Brian Giberson (Power On: The Story Of Xbox), the project leads a new gaming initiative at Black Mask Entertainment, the busy production arm with more than two dozen features and series in development at studios and networks.

Pizzolo and Wieszczyk self-distributed the Godkiller’ comic at comic cons starting in 2008, where it grew in notoriety leading to a Warner Bros.-distributed animated feature written and directed by Pizzolo in 2011. The comic book returned through publisher Black Mask Studios with 2021’s ‘Godkiller: Tomorrow’s Ashes’ to overwhelming success, selling out of a 40,000 book print run on the day of its release and going on to sell through numerous additional printings. It quickly became one of the top-selling indie comic books of the year, and Black Mask’s all-time bestselling series.

Godkiller will next return to comic shops in September with the brand new series ‘Godkiller: For Those I Love I Will Sacrifice.’

Aya Cash is represented by UTA and Industry Entertainment.

Matteo Pizzolo is represented by WME and TFC Management.

Greenwich To Release Biographical Documentary “We Are As Gods”

Greenwich To Release Biographical Documentary We Are As GodsGreenwich Entertainment is set to release the documentary about American visionary Stewart Brand

“We Are As Gods” offers a deep dive into the many sides of Stewart Brand— the Zelig-like creator of The Whole Earth Catalog, an influential member of Ken Kesey’s “The Merry Pranksters,” and an early activist in the modern environmental movement. Brand, in his guise as cyber-utopian, coined the phrase “personal computer” and influenced many in Silicon Valley, including Steve Jobs, who have gone on to shape our modern world. Now in his 80s, Brand looks to leave a legacy for the long-term future with his efforts to rewild ecosystems by resurrecting extinct species. But his former allies believe he’s gone too far.

“We are as gods and might as well get good at it,” Stewart Brand wrote in 1968. A Zelig-like pioneer of LSD, modern environmentalism, cyberspace and futurism now urges people to use their god-like powers to fight extinction by reviving lost species, but his former allies in the environmental movement vow to stand in his way.

Also of note, Brand is the subject of a recent Penguin Press biography by John Markoff.

Directed by David Alvarado and Jason Sussberg (Bill Nye: Science Guy), the film will be released on demand starting Tuesday, September 6, 2022.
