Los Angeles, CA (July 9, 2014) – Freestyle Releasing and Freestyle Digital Media (FDM) announced today that they have acquired theatrical and all DVD/VOD rights to 108 STITCHES, the baseball comedy from writer/director David Rountree and co-writer Jake Katofsky. The film features Josh Blue (“Last Comic Standing” winner), Dat Phan (“Last Comic Standing” winner), Erin Cahill (POWER RANGERS), Larry Thomas (“Seinfeld’s” Soup Nazi) and Bruce Davison (X-MEN), with a special appearance by baseball legend Roger Clemens. 108 STITCHES was co-written and produced by Jake Katofsky, with producers that also include Jeff Katofsky and J.P. Pierce. The film is slated for a theatrical and VOD release on September 12th, 2014.

With baseball being the last thing on these players’ minds, and dealing with one of the longest losing streaks in college history, the team of misfits comes to the realization that the school, led by the corrupt and unethical President of the University, has plans to disband the entire program. Hilarity ensues as they have one afternoon to execute a plan to fill the stadium, sign the top recruit on the planet, and help send their coach out with a bang.

Freestyle’s Mark Borde brokered the deal with producer Jeff Katofsky of 108 Stitches LLC on behalf of the filmmakers.

“108 Stitches is a hilarious baseball comedy with nods to National Lampoon’s Animal House,” said Borde, “In addition to traditional marketing efforts, the film will be supported through numerous comedy and sports outlets.

Film star Dat Phan will host a kick-off comedy event for the film this Sunday, July 13th at Flappers Comedy Club & Restaurant in Burbank, CA.

Recent Freestyle titles include the box office hit GOD’S NOT DEAD, as well as recent titles BOTTLED UP with Melissa Leo, UNDERDOGS, with D.B. Sweeny and Natalie Imbruglia, TIGER EYES, the first big screen adaptation of a Judy Blume novel starring Willa Holland and the upcoming THE IDENTICAL starring Ashley Judd and Ray Liotta.
