MIPTV Spotlight: Lightning Entertainment

CANNES: The movies that Lightning Entertainment is promoting for MIPTV come with star talent attached.

“They are films with star value, such as Josh Duhamel, Maria Bello and Lucas Till in Bravetown or James Caan in Preggoland,” says Ken DuBow, the executive VP and general manager of Lightning Entertainment. “They also have strong genre value. Girlhouse is a classic horror film, while Bravetown and Preggoland’s themes of forgiveness and family are universal in their audience appeal.”

Girlhouse gives a nod to classic slasher flicks, but with a fresh take for the digital generation. Bravetown is about a musical talent who is heading back to his hometown, while Preggoland centers on a thirtysomething party girl who lies about becoming pregnant.
