MILAN -- Franchise Pictures said Sunday that it has acquired worldwide rights to the action comedy Extreme Dating in a deal brokered by John Sloss and Paul Brennan of Cinetic Media. Directed by Lorena David, the ensemble cast features Devon Sawa (Final Destination), Jamie-Lynn DiScala (The Sopranos), Amanda Detmer (The Majestic), Andrew Keegan (10 Things I Hate About You) and rocker-actor Meat Loaf. The film tells the story of four friends who believe that the key to winning over their true loves is to place themselves in extreme situations. They plot a fake kidnapping, but the plan goes awry when the kidnappers turn out to be ex-cons with plans of their own. Extreme Dating is produced by Mark A. Roberts. " 'Extreme Dating' is a hilarious film with a broad appeal to all ages," Franchise chairman and CEO Elie Samaha said.
