The Orchard has nabbed North American distribution rights to The Escort in a deal made just before the comedy world-premieres tonight at the Los Angeles Film Festival. The plan is to give it a VOD release beginning July 28. The pic centers on Mitch (Michael Doneger, who also penned the script with Brandon Cohen), a sex-crazed writer, and Natalie (Lyndsy Fonseca), a Stanford-educated prostitute, who form a mutually beneficial partnership in a world of high-class escorts. Bruce Campbell, Tommy Dewey, Rumer Willis and Rachel Resheff also star. Will Slocombe directs.
Tyler Konney executive produced the pic with Blake Goza, Mark DiCristofaro, and Doneger serving as producers. Taylor & Dodge handled sales for the film, which has a spot in the LA Film Festival’s LA Muse section.
