Some hope for two NC Films: Galifianakis / Beckinsale flicks

Masterminds-2015

Bloomberg Business is releasing some news tht could give us a little ray of hope for two NC Films that were produced last year.  If you remember, both Masterminds (Kristen Wiig, Owen Wilson, Zach Galifianakis) and The Disappointments Room (Kate Beckinsale) were put on hold indefinitely due to Relativity Media LLC’s bankruptcy filing.  However, it is now being reported that Relativity Media’s CEO Ryan Kavanaugh  has found a way to “keep control of his bankrupt movie studio and possibly allow stalled films to make their way into theaters.”

Relativity went to court on Monday to seek approval of a plan that will help its TV unit exit bankruptcy as early as October 20th and allow Kavanaugh to keep the rest company.  Another hearing is today regarding the TV unit, however, we will still be waiting for the film side of the business to see it’s fate. It’s currently in TBD mode.

What will happen to the NC Filmed Masterminds & Disappointments Room now?

Masterminds

Earlier this week the news broke about  Relativity being…well broke! Relativity Media has filed for Chapter 11 in what many are calling one of the biggest bankruptcies in Hollywood history. And that puts two North Carolina shot films in jeopardy: The NC-Filmed comedy shot in the western part of the state Masterminds (Zach Galifianakis, Kristen Wiig and Owen Wilson) and the thriller shot in the Greensboro area The Disappointments Room (Kate Beckinsale). Both releases have been postponed “indefinitely.”

Today, Eriq Gardner of the Hollywood Reporter writes, “RKA Film Financing, the firm that put up $115 million to fund Relativity Media’s advertising on upcoming films including Masterminds, Somnia, Disappointments Room and Kidnap, is now seeking to seize those films and sell them off to another studio for distribution.”  READ STORY NOW

More to come on this story. Eriq Gardner says, “The Hollywood Reporter will provide updates on this motion.” We will be ready and waiting.
