Domestic distribution company Apparition, ran by Bob Berney and Bill Pohlad, is bringing Black Dynamite to theaters this fall.
According to Variety, the spoof played in Sundance's Midnight section this year and was bought by Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions Group, which handles all domestic ancillaries for Apparition's releases.
In this case, Sony brought Apparition one of their titles to distribute theatrically.
Black Dynamite was helmed and co-written by Scott Sanders and stars Michael Jai White, who also co-wrote along with co-star Byron Minns.
"Both Scott and Michael really know every film in the (blaxploitation) genre and every little detail," said Berney, who saw the film at Sundance and has been following it while building his new distribution company. "Even the strangest stuff in the film has been seen or done in those films. It's a sort of 'Austin Powers' period comedy that appeals to younger audiences."
The film will have a platform release starting on Oct. 16.
