AMG Films, a wholly owned division of AMG Holdings, announced today it has inked a five-year, first-look deal with Warner Bros. Home Entertainment Group for television, DVD and digital rights in the U.S. and in select foreign territories.
The first of the films, all of which will be released by Warner Home Video (WHV), will be the animated 3-D feature The Lion of Judah, hitting screens in 1,000 domestic theaters this spring through a distribution agreement with Rocky Mountain Pictures. The film features the voice talent of stars Scott Eastwood (Invictus, Gran Torino, Pride, Flags of Our Fathers), Michael Madsen (Donnie Brasco, Kill Bill, Vols. 1 & 2, Reservoir Dogs) and Ernest Borgnine (Red, The Wild Bunch, The Dirty Dozen, Marty, From Here to Eternity, TV’s McHale’s Navy).
The Lion of Judah — which tells the Easter story through lovable stable animals’ eyes — was produced by Animated Family Films, the animation arm of AMG Holdings, and has already garnered a groundswell of support and anticipation through churches and faith-based organizations.
