Sony pays $2 million to distribute Black Dynamite

Congratulations are in order for the folks at Ars Nova, the New York City theater and production company that made its first foray into feature films with the blaxploitation spoof, Black Dynamite, got it into Sundance and earlier this week sold the distribution rights to Sony Pictures for about $2 million, with a promise from Sony execs for a solid marketing push. The cast stars Michael Jai White and includes Arsenio Hall as Tasty Freeze, Nicole Sullivan as Patricia Nixon, Tommy Davidson as Cream Corn, and Phil Hughes as as Saheed, plus NYC stand-up Baron Vaughn.
