CANDiLAND is based on the novel by Elizabeth Engstrom and will be distributed in North America by IndustryWorks Pictures spring 2016.

“It is an extreme honor and privilege to be awarded this distinction. This is really a reflection of all the hard work of the crew, cast, and everyone who supported this great film.  I am eternally in debt to my co-leads Gary Busey and Chelah Horsdal who were an inspiration everyday and will no doubt be recognized for their outstanding performances in this film. As well as to the magnetic Elizabeth Engstrom, and of course, our inventive and extraordinary leader, writer/Editor/Director Rusty Nixon.” says James Clayton.

Since then, he has added an extensive list of versatile characters to his resume. In 2004, James went on to a supporting lead role in the Horror feature Adam and Evil followed by a leading role in the Thriller feature The Bentley Box (2004) and honed his comedic skills while leading in the head-banger Comedy, Blackbridge (2006). On television, James has appeared on the hit CW series Supernatural (2009), Fox’s Fringe (2011), and has appeared as leading roles in multiple commercial campaigns for clients such as Reebok, Suddenlink, Kia, and Telus.

INDUSTRYWORKS STUDIOS ANNOUNCES ITS DISTRIBUTION DEAL IN THE USA FOR THE FEATURE FILM ‘THE LOST LEGION’ WITH GRINDSTONE ENTERTAINMENT

The Lost Legion Feature FilmIndustryWorks is pleased to announce at this year’s AFM the US distribution deal for ‘The Lost Legion’ with Grindstone Entertainment.  Lionsgate Home Entertainment will release the film across its media platforms in 2015. The feature film will be the catalyst that launches ‘The Lost Legion’ TV series slated for 2015 from Executive Producers, Evan Tylor, John Curtis and Lloyd Simandl.

“We’re very excited to launch this movie with Grindstone Entertainment and we look forward to continuing to deliver high end TV content into the marketplace.,” says Evan Tylor, CEO IndustryWorks Studios.

IndustryWorks Studios is fresh off their newest production, the terror-driven, theatrical film ‘WRECKER’ starring Anna Hutchison (Cabin in the Woods).  IndustryWorks Studio also brought us the now infamous and New York Times touted feature film ‘American Mary’ distributed by Universal Pictures, Anchor Bay and XLrator Media in 2013.

About ‘The Lost Legion’:
Sex, corruption, betrayal and the final death throws of a once powerful Empire.  Where enemies become allies, allies become pawns and one man’s struggle to survive is “the last chance for a new Rome”.

After the fall of the Rome, a once powerful Empire is now but a shadow of it’s self, deprived of its former glory and the Dark Ages are imminent.  Fortress towns are now small kingdoms where decadence and corruption thrive and the struggle to maintain control is quickly slipping away.  In one such remote outpost, one Legion remains and strives to bring Rome back to its former glory and the interwoven lives of the strong, the corrupt, the innocent and the power hungry will determine Rome’s final destiny.

About the Cast and Characters:
The feature film stars Michelle Lukes (‘Strike Back’, ‘Alexander’, ‘Doctors’) as the manipulative and shrewd Urbina Prima, the wife of Maximus the insane and glory seeking Roman Emperor played by Brian Caspe (‘Hellboy’, The Illusionist’, ‘The Last Knights’). Also starring is Tom McKay (‘Hatfields & McCoys’, ‘The White Queen’) as the ‘Legions’ hero Taranis and Jim High (‘The Muskateers’, ‘Borgia’, Crossing Lines’) as Argos, the middleman who plays all sides of this chessboard.

This stellar cast comes with a long list of Emmy, Golden Globe and People Choice nominated credits and awards on both feature films and television.

“We have the utmost confidence that Grindstone along with the marketing machine of Lionsgate that ‘The Lost Legion’ will be given the perfect reveal into the US market. We’re looking forward to seeing it all come together.”  Adds Caterina Scrivano, VP Sales & Marketing, IndustryWorks Studios.

“In the tradition of “Game of Thrones”, we look forward to bringing IndustryWorks’s new feature film, “The Lost Legion” to the U.S. audience.  Evan, John, and Lloyd have created a fresh and quite provocative vision of the politics of the Roman Empire”.  – Stan Wertlieb-Grindstone Entertainment Group-Head of Acquisitions.
