Default SUSHI GIRL Lands at Phase 4 Films

The Wagner/Cuban Company's Magnolia Home Entertainment and Phase 4 Films announced today they have jointly acquired North American rights to SUSHI GIRL. The revenge thriller had its international premiere at the Fantasia International Film Festival on July 21, 2012, to be followed by a theatrical release in the U.S. and cable VOD by Phase 4 Films in late 2012, with Blu-ray, DVD and digital VOD release by Magnolia Home Entertainment under the Magnet Releasing label in early 2013. Phase 4 Films will also distribute the film theatrically and on home video in Canada.

The hotly anticipated genre-bending thriller by director Kern Saxton (co-writer of the film along with Destin Pfaff) is produced by Assembly Line, a team including Neal Fischer, Pfaff, Saxton, and Suren M. Seron, in association with Level Up Productions.

Tony Todd (CANDYMAN) and Mark Hamill (STAR WARS Franchise) lead a cast of cult heroes including Noah Hathaway (The NEVERENDING STORY), James Duval (DONNIE DARKO), Andy Mackenzie (MacGRUBER), David "Dee Fearless" Dastmalchian (The DARK KNIGHT) and Cortney Palm (SUPERBAD). SUSHI GIRL also includes feature appearances by Michael Biehn (ALIENS), Sonny Chiba (KILL BILL Vol. 1), Jeff Fahey (GRINDHOUSE) and Danny Trejo (MACHETE).

The film centers on the compelling character of a man called "Fish," just released after six years in jail after successfully not ratting on those involved in the robbery that sent him to prison. The night he is released, the men he protected with silence celebrate his freedom with a congratulatory dinner. The meal is a lavish array of sushi, served off the naked body of a beautiful young woman. The sushi girl seems catatonic, trained to ignore everything in the room, even if things become dangerous. Sure enough, the unwieldy thieves can't help but open old wounds in an attempt to find their missing loot, with violent results.

"SUSHI GIRL's all-star ensemble of fan favorite actors will resonate with the Magnet audience," said Head of Magnolia Home Entertainment Randy Wells. "Kern and the SUSHI GIRL production team have put together an incredibly cool, well-crafted thriller, and Mark Hamill's performance will leave fans buzzing."

"We both loved the film so much that teaming up was the only option," said Larry Greenberg, SVP Acquisitions of Phase 4 Films.

"It was a long battle to get the right distribution for this film, but we are extremely happy with how our partners have worked together with us to create a win for everyone involved," said Suren M. Seron of Assembly Line.

SUSHI GIRL comes to theaters in 2012 and stars Danny Trejo, Mark Hamill, Michael Biehn, Noah Hathaway, Tony Todd, Jeff Fahey, James Duval, Sonny Chiba. The film is directed by Kern Saxton.
