We love when clarification is given. It just makes everything seem a bit saner, ya know? It seems that The Hollywood Reporter didn’t have all of its ducks in a row concerning the title switch of Walking Distance to Experimental Activity.
We heard from producer and star James LaMarr, who shed a little light on the subject for us!
“Our title is still ‘Walking Distance’,” LaMarr tells Dread. “The alternate title that Showcase came up with after they acquired the international rights over the weekend applies to the foreign market only. They felt they needed a catchier title for that market, and we gave them permission to change it. We sent them several alternate suggestions, but they ultimately chose their own. We are excited to have Showcase represent our film abroad – they have decades of experience, and even more, they are excited about all aspects of the project. We look to them as the experts and trust them to make the decisions that best position our film for success.”
Domestically we are still ‘Walking Distance’ and are very happy with that title and artwork. We look forward to making a domestic deal soon, and our sales representative (Circus Road Films) is actively exploring that now.”
There you have it! For more on the film visit the official Walking Distance MySpace page.
An idyllic, small, self-sufficient community. On the surface, it seems like the perfect neighborhood. Everything you could possibly need is within walking distance. But… the pastoral exterior conceals a dark past and an even darker secret. As a group of individuals – each with their own ties and agendas with the town and each other – converges on the enclave, strange things begin to happen. Very strange things. Strange enough to test – and then break – the very fabric of reality itself.
