Theatrical, On Demand & Digital Release Planned for August 2019

Cinedigm announced today that it has acquired all North American rights to MADNESS IN THE METHOD from Autumnwood Media. The directorial debut of iconic actor Jason Mewes, the comedy stars Mewes (Clerks), Kevin Smith (Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back), Gina Carano (Haywire), Jaime Camil (“Jane the Virgin”), Vinnie Jones (Snatch), Danny Trejo (Machete), Stan Lee (in his last onscreen role), Teri Hatcher (Tomorrow Never Dies), Brian O’Halloran (Mallrats), and Dean Cain (God’s Not Dead). Cinedigm will release the picture in select theaters, on demand and digitally in August 2019, with a DVD and Blu-ray™ release to follow later in the year.
 
In the film Mewes, tired of Hollywood’s perception of him, embarks on a quest to reinvent himself as a serious actor. Upon advice from best friend Kevin Smith, Mewes tracks down a highly secretive method-acting book – with disastrous consequences. The meta comedy marks the return of iconic comic duo Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith (aka Jay and Silent Bob) in their first major live action roles together since Clerks 2. Joining the star-studded ensemble are Blake Harrison (The Inbetweeners), Casper Van Dien (Starship Troopers), Judd Nelson (The Breakfast Club), and David Dastmalchian (Ant-Man).
 
“We are thrilled to release MADNESS IN THE METHOD,” said Yolanda Macias, Cinedigm’s Executive Vice-President of Acquisitions. “Jason made a hilarious film that is sure to give all of his and Kevin Smith’s fans the laughs they’ve been hungry for since Clerks 2.”
 
“We are delighted to be partnering with Cinedigm,” said producer Rob Weston. “They showed incredible tenacity to acquire the picture and we are convinced we have found the perfect home.”
 
The deal was negotiated by Josh Thomashow, Director of Acquisitions for Cinedigm, and Rob Weston on behalf of Autumnwood Media.
