NAGRA-KUDELSKI’s myCinema digital content distribution system has announced its full slate of films a year after it’s launch, teed off by the James Franco feature Zeroville, which the actor both directed and headlines.
Originally, Alchemy took domestic rights at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival to Zeroville months before the company capsized due to bankruptcy. Since its pick-up at TIFF, Zeroville unfortunately became entangled in Alchemy’s financial woes and was thrown into distribution limbo until the US distribution rights were recently acquired by NAGRA. The pic will hit cinemas in September. The comedy based on Steve Erickson’s novel about a young actor who arrives in Hollywood during a transitional time also stars Seth Rogen, Megan Fox, Joey King, Will Ferrell, Dave Franco, Danny McBride, and Jacki Weaver.
myCinema delivers films over the internet which individual theaters can then licenses for any number of weeks of play. myCinema also markets the pics for exhibitors and the distribution system is currently available at 500 screens throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Two episode into The Deuce‘s sophomore run on HBO, the premium cable network has renewed it for a third and has set an end date. Season 3 will be the period drama’ final installment.
Created by George Pelecanos and David Simon and starring James Franco and Maggie Gyllenhaal, The Deuce follows the story of the legalization and subsequent rise of the porn industry in New York’s Times Square from the early 1970s through the mid-1980s, exploring the rough-and-tumble world that existed there until the rise of HIV, the violence of the cocaine epidemic and the renewed real estate market all ended the bawdy turbulence.
The Deuce returned with new episodes on Sept. 9 with ratings that so far have been below the show’s Season 1 performance.
The series drew scrutiny earlier this year when five women came forward with allegations of sexually inappropriate and exploitative behavior against star/executive producer Franco, claims he vehemently denied. HBO and Simon quickly came to Franco’s defense, saying there had been no complaints about him and calling his behavior on the show “entirely professional.” The network talked to The Deuce producers and cast, among others, before deciding to proceed with the second season.
The Deuce is executive produced by Pelecanos, Simon, Nina Kostroff Noble and Franco; Richard Price is co-executive producer; Marc Henry Johnson and Gyllenhaal produce.
