TLA RELEASING LASSOS DAVID LEWIS’ FRISKY, ROMANTIC SEX COMEDY: LONGHORNS

San Francisco, CA/New York, NY (June 30,2011) – Morning View Films is
proud to announce that TLA Releasing has acquired North American and
United Kingdom rights (theatrical, TV, Home Video (incl. DVD), EST,
DTO, PPV, VOD, DTR, streaming, all other internet, new media,
ancillary) for David Lewis’ frisky, Eighties-themed sex comedy,
LONGHORNS,  which recently made its World Premiere at Frameline35: San
Francisco International LGBT Film Festival. The film is set to play
Outfest 2011 – with two sold-out screenings and another just added –
and Philadelphia QFest 2011, with additional festivals to follow.

The deal was negotiated between Derek Curl, President and CEO of TLA
Releasing, director David Lewis of Morning View Films and producer
Lewis Tice.

“TLA is thrilled to release David Lewis’ first refreshingly frisky,
unabashedly gay and sweet comedy to our audience,” says Derek Curl,
President and CEO of TLA Releasing. “With Mr. Lewis’ previous films,
Rock Haven and Redwoods, in our current catalog, the acquisition
demonstrates the company’s dedication to supporting our filmmakers.”

The Eighties-themed, sex farce tells the story of Kevin (Jacob
Newton), a “straight” college boy who likes to rope his fellow school
mates into creative male-bonding sessions. But he gets his lasso in a
bunch when he encounters Cesar (Derek Villanueva), an openly gay
student. Kevin’s heart starts to flutter for the young man, setting
off a chain of events where sexual identity comes into question and a
weekend fueled by beers, straight porn and sexual frustration will
lead to multiple bed-hopping and questions about which side of the
fence some of these “Longhorns” sit on!

The comedy also stars Dylan Vox (“The Lair”), Stephen Matzke (Go Go
Reject), Kevin Held, Katrina Sherwood, Sophia Revelli and Bonnie
Marion.  Directed and written by David Lewis, the film is produced by
H.P. Mendoza (Fruit Fly, Colma: The Musical) – who also edited and
composed original music – and Lewis Tice (BearCity), with Frazer
Bradshaw (Everything Strange and New, Sundance ’09) serving as
Director of Photography.

“We couldn’t be more happy to be working with TLA Releasing again as
they have been like “family” over the years,” says writer, director
David Lewis. “TLA is ahead of the curve in film distribution – from
designing creative release strategies to broadening their
multi-territory roll-outs and embracing modern, multi-platform
distribution methods- I know that LONGHORNS is in good hands!”
