Independent U.S. distributors Scorpion Releasing have confirmed that they have signed a distribution deal with Kino Lorber. Under the new deal, Kino Lorber will access and distribute all upcoming and past catalog titles, including limited Blu-ray editions, from Scorpion Releasing's catalog.
Scorpion Releasing have also confirmed that some of the first titles scheduled for release through the Kino Lorber distribution chain are the Emmy nominated TV movie Friendly Fire, starring Carol Burnett, the award winning Australian drama Careful, He Might Hear You (1983), starring Wendy Hughes and Robyn Nevin, the action thriller Green Ice (1981), starring Ryan O'Neal, Anne Archer, and Omar Sharifm and the Roger Corman produced and Jack Hill directed Sorceress (1982), starring Leigh Harris, Lynette Harris, and Roberto Nelson.
Frank Tarzi, VP of Acquisitions and Business Development at Kino Lorber, who negotiated the deal commented: "We're very exited to be distributing these great films from the Scorpion Releasing library".
Good news. Scorpion Releasing should be supported. They have been releasing obscure titles of the 70s and 80s, which only have a niche market. Speaking of the upcoming releases, GREEN ICE is a pleasant surprise!
