CLEVELAND, April 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Independent motion picture studio Triangle Park Entertainment LLC and its Chicago-based production partner, Madwerkz Studios LLC announced their plans today for the select screening of the motion picture, "#50Fathers" in six major markets beginning this May. #50Fathers is a dramatic comedy written and directed by Joddy Eric Matthews (Seeing Tomorrow, The Deadly Return Project, The Bubble) and filmed in Northeast Ohio. Triangle Park will premiere the film in Cleveland and follow with releases in Atlanta, Detroit, Washington DC, Memphis and Columbus. #50Fathers will also be made available to viewers around the world through video-on-demand (VOD) on Reelhouse (www.reelhouse.org) beginning May 25 for two (2) weeks and other prominent streaming platforms. The official US television trailer for the film will debut on Bounce TV (www.BounceTV.com) in early May. The project is the first urban comedy filmed in 4K or Ultra HD.
The story follows Dominique 'Nique' Hathaway, a blue-chip high school athlete (Johnathon L. Jackson) as he prepares to sign a lucrative professional sports contract to play football or baseball. He seemingly has the world at his fingertips except for the one thing he desires most…a father. He and a group of friends launch a social media campaign to attract candidates to serve as a father to his younger brother, Tyree and himself. Fifty prospects will be screened and the one selected will be paid $10,000 per month once Nique signs his pro contract.
"This isn't a sports film; it's not about teams, touchdowns or baskets. It's about what's really important in life... family," says Matthews. "The focus is on the values of fatherhood and the importance of family," he adds. "We believe the timing is perfect for a film of this nature."
#50Fathers stars Johnathon L. Jackson and Kyle Carthens with Joseph Primes, Mikel Mahoney, Tati Ana, Giovanni Castiglione, Latecia D. Wilson, Sonia Bishop and Denny Castiglione.
Jackson and Carthens are close friends who are fulfilling a long-time dream of playing opposite each other. "This is something we've always wanted to do," says Jackson, who was last seen in Lionsgate's Draft Day. "Kyle and I really support each other's careers and this is a very special opportunity for us," he adds.
Carthens is coming off a feature role in Lifetime TV's With This Ring which aired in January 2015. "Johnathon and I are often competing for roles, so we're really pleased that we both scored great parts in a meaningful project. Playing brothers was a fantastic experience," says Carthens.
