Netflix Snags The True Memoirs Of An International Assassin

20 May 2015 11:10 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Netflix left its mark at Cannes yesterday by acquiring worldwide distribution rights to Kevin James action-comedy The True Memoirs of an International Assassin. The purchase furthers the streaming service’s aggressive forays into feature distribution, especially given that the budget is said to be on the scale of other James titles, including Sony Pictures’ Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 and Zookeeper.

Under the terms of the deal, The True Memoirs of an International Assassin will be presented as a “Netflix event,” debuting exclusively on the streaming service next year and entirely circumventing a theatrical release. Major theater chains like AMC and Regal have been vocal in their opposition to Netflix failing to observe the traditional release model of a theatrical bow followed by home media release, so one can imagine those companies are none-too-happy to hear about the streaming service’s latest acquisition.

Netflix Picks Up Comedy Film Starring Kevin James

19 May 2015 4:53 PM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Netflix already has a four-film deal in place with Adam Sandler, and now, the streaming video platform has picked up a film featuring a frequent Sandler co-star. Kevin James, who most recently appeared in the critically-savaged sequel Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2, will star in The True Memoirs Of An International Hit Man, which Netflix has acquired.

In True Memoirs, James plays an author who must flee to Belize after he is mistaken for an assassin. While James’ auspicious filmography, Mall Cop 2’s 6% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and the recent issues that have plagued Netflix’s other comedy film projects may make potential viewers less than excited about True Memoirs, the film does have a few enticing elements going for it. Its director, Jeff Waldow, led superhero sequel Kick Ass 2, and its script, written by Jeff Morris, comes from Hollywood’s Black List, which notes the best unproduced screenplays of each year. »

Cannes: Netflix Acquires Kevin James’ ‘True Memoirs of an International Assassin’ (Exclusive)

19 May 2015 1:05 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Netflix has made its first big splash at the Cannes Film Festival by acquiring worldwide distribution rights to the upcoming Kevin James comedy “The True Memoirs of an International Assassin,” Variety has learned.

The purchase, which is in final negotiations, is a formidable coup for Netflix as it continues to build on its reputation in the realm of distributing original films.

Under the deal, “Assassin” will be presented as a Netflix event in 2016, meaning it will debut exclusively on the streaming service and not in theaters. The budget for the production will be considerable, according to a source, and on par with other James movies made by major studios like Sony Pictures. The figures for the deal were not disclosed.

In the comedy, James plays an accountant mistaken for an assassin when a novel he’s writing is accidentally published as nonfiction, forcing him to flee to Belize. “Assassin” will »

Kevin James Will Topline The True Memoirs Of An International Assassin

6 May 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After stinking up the multiplex with Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 last month, is Kevin James finally searching for critical redemption? Nah, don’t think so. The actor has signed on to star in comedy The True Memoirs of an International Assassin, with Blart producer Todd Garner returning in the same capacity and Jeff Sussman (Zookeeper) exec-producing.

The pic, to be directed by Jeff Wadlow (Kick-Ass 2, the upcoming Masters of the Universe) from a Black List script by Jeff Morris, will center on a bumbling, mild-mannered accountant who tries his hand at novel-writing, only for his book about an international assassin to top the charts – as a non-fiction memoir. Bombarded by publicity and unsure of how to deal with a world that now believes him to be a stone-cold killer, he vacations in Belize. Predictably, he ends up snared in an actual assassination plot in the Central American country »
