- The North American Rights to Duane ‘Dog’ Chapman's faith-based movie 'Hunter's Creed' acquired by Cinedigm.
Duane ‘Dog’ Chapman’s (Dog the Bounty Hunter) faith-based movie Hunter’s Creed has been acquired by Cinedigm. Cinedigm will hold the North American distribution rights. The movie is set to be released in October 2020.
Starring Chapman and Wesley Truman Daniel (Second Samuel), the film is an inspirational story about keeping faith even in the face of great personal loss. After losing his wife, a man reunites with his church buddies to film the hunting show they’ve always wanted to make together. Before long, he senses a dark presence in the woods eventually bringing him face to face with death – and his faith.
Chapman plays himself in the movie and the cast also includes Mickey O’Sullivan, Ann Sonneville, John Victor Allen, James Errico, and LaDios Muhammad.
“Casting Duane ‘Dog’ Chapman was the perfect addition to the project as he channels his own life experiences to the big screen,” says Yolanda Macias, EVP, Content Acquisitions, Digital Sales and Studio Relations at Cinedigm. “We look forward to bringing this unique take on the faith genre to viewers this fall.”
“It’s a film about seeking truth and finding yourself, and if you know anything about Dog’s personal story, you know he embodies exactly that,” says Jackola. “It’s not your everyday faith film. While there are parts of the film that evoke emotion and are relatable with loss, the scenes in the woods are a fresh take on a group of hunting buddies having fun mixed with some unexplainable elements that keep you on the edge of your seat.”
Hunter’s Creed is produced by Jackola & Jacquelyn Jamjoom. Executive producers include John W. Bosher, Chris Charles, Ted Reilly, Kelly Aisthorpe Waller & John Waller with Ken Miyamoto as Co-Producer and Samantha George as Associate Producer.
The deal was negotiated by Macias and Director of Acquisitions Josh Thomashow on behalf of Cinedigm and John W. Bosher and Chris Charles of Throughline Films on behalf of the filmmakers.
