Image Entertainment Gets Stranded Starring Christian Slater

Image Entertainment, Inc., a subsidiary of RLJ Entertainment (NASDAQ: RLJE), has picked up all U.S. rights to the sci-fi thriller Stranded starring Christian Slater ( Interview with a Vampire, Bobby). Directed by Academy Award™ winner Roger Christian and produced by Minds Eye Entertainment in association with Moving Pictures Media, the film also stars Brendan Fehr ( Final Destination, X-Men: First Class), Amy Matysio ( Just Friends, Vampire Dog) and Michael Therriault ( Total Recall, “Covert Affairs”). The announcement was made at AFM by Image Entertainment’s Chief Acquisition Officer, Bill Bromiley.

“We’re very pleased to continue doing business with our friends at Minds Eye Entertainment,” commented Bromiley. “Our first project with Kevin and his team was The Tall Man which was very successful for Image. We feel just as strongly about Stranded and we know audiences will love it.”

“We’re happy that Image will be our partner once again,” commented Kevin DeWalt, CEO/Producer of Minds Eye Entertainment. “We look forward to working with them on the sci-fi suspense thriller that is Stranded .”

When four astronauts on board the Ark moonbase are unexpectedly struck by a series of meteor blasts, Colonel Gerard Brauchman (Slater) and his crew work to stabilize the base. After removing a stray meteor from the carbon dioxide filter, they realize the spores on the meteor have the ability to replicate cell structure, reproduce and mutate. Fascinated by the meteor’s uncanny ability to replicate, the crew believes they have just discovered a scientific phenomenon. But have they? Soon afterwards, the crew begins to realize they are not alone. The presence on board begins to target each of them, leaving those remaining to destroy it before all are killed. Stranded was produced by Kevin DeWalt, Mark Montague and Isabella Battiston.
