Riding on the indie range

Drug dealers and tormented thieves will be scoring on the big screen in two indie pickups.

Magnolia Pictures has nabbed worldwide rights to Billy Corben's documentary Cocaine Cowboys 2: Hustlin' With the Godmother, a sequel to his 2006 crime docu, for its Magnet Releasing genre label.

Fellow genre film distributor After Dark Films has acquired North American rights to Xavier Gens' French horror film "Frontier(s)," the story of a band of thieves who find refuge in a motel, only to discover that it's run by Neo-Nazis from hell. Samuel Le Bihan (Brotherhood of the Wolf) stars.

Magnolia released the original Cowboys, which followed the crime-ridden Miami drug scene of the 1970s and '80s, inspiring several upcoming narrative films. The sequel follows Oakland, Calif.-based dealer Charles Cosby and his personal and professional relationship with Cocaine Godmother Griselda Blanco in the '90s.

Both pickups are driven by the films' DVD potential. "Frontier(s)" will have a limited theatrical release May 9, followed four days later by a DVD release through After Dark's output deal with Lionsgate.
