Main Street Films acquires Bank$tas for U.S. theatrical release

The office comedy, formerly called Cubicle Warriors, will be targeted at U.S. college towns by the Los Angeles distributor.

Main Street Films has picked up Jeff Stephenson’s office comedy Bank$tas for a U.S. theatrical rollout.

The Los Angeles distributor will give a platform release to the Canadian indie.

Robert Budreau for Lumanity Productions, who produced Bank$tas (formerly Cubicle Warriors), told Playback that Main Street Films will target key U.S. college cities after opening the pic on April 18, 2014.

The Canadian film will be released on at least 100 screens in all, as part of the distribution deal inked with Lumanity Productions.

Shot in North Bay, Ontario, the theatrical comedy stars Alan Thicke, Laura Vandervoort, Michael Seater, Joe Dinicol and Brandon Firla.

Seater and Dinicol play best-friend finance grads who embark on a crazy mission to stop a top investment banker (Thicke) and his lawyer (Vandervoort) from closing a crooked deal involving student loan debt.

Written by Robert Budreau and executive produced by Adam Bradley, the film was financed by Lumanity and Well-Drawn Dog Productions, Productivity Media, the NOHFC and Telefilm Canada.
