Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment is looking to bring home a festival darling in Skateland, the film nominated for a Grand Jury Prize at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival, capturing the spirit of the rebellious youth spawned from the 1980s socio-economic status who are coming to terms with the end of an era as the roller-rinks are beginning to go the way of the dodo. Skateland will be made available for DVD and Blu-ray on August 30, 2011.
The movie stars Ashley Greene (Twilight saga) and Shiloh Fernandez (Red Riding Hood), as the pair develop a romance amidst the cultural climate shift. Both of the formats will feature some deleted scenes as supplemental material. The DVD will be available for the MSRP (Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price) of $22.98, while the Blu-ray will run at the MSRP of $29.99.
In the March/April issue of Scene Magazine, Ashley Greene’s ‘Skateland’ co-star, Shiloh Fernandez, chatted about working on the film, working with Ashley and more! Director and producer Anthony Burns also talked to the Mag’ and gave ‘Skateland’ casting details. The same people who cast for Twilight also worked with ‘Skateland.’
Anthony Burns on casting Ashley Greene:
“Trish Wood, Jennifer Smith and Deborah Aquila cast our film. They had just done Twilight so they had young talent like Shiloh, who was second choice for the lead in Twilight, and Ashley Greene in mind when we walked in. Great casting agents do that for you.”
Shiloh Fernandez on Ashley Greene’s Talent:
“She’s really gonna open people’s minds to what she can do. She was fantastic. I actually took a lot from her in terms of her ease, her calmness and letting things kind of come and really feeling things,” he says of his co-star. “It was a really good lesson for me to learn, ’cause I feel like sometimes I maybe do too much or I’m thinking too much. She was just so hyperaware and and settled that it reads. She gave a fantastic nuanced performance. Plus she’s an awesome, awesome girl and it was great to have her as a friend there.”
