Breaking Glass Pictures has acquired worldwide distribution rights to the indie drama “Dynamite: A 60’s Love Story,” which stars Ian Harding (“”Pretty Little Liars”) as a heroin addict working in the illegal porn industry. Breaking Glass announced it is planning a theatrical release for Oct. 2015.
Harding plays Max Bornstein, who actually wrote the script with Jason Noto about his own story of addiction and redemption. Bornstein also produced the film with Jordan Yale Levine and Ash Christian.
Tate Steinsiek made his feature directorial debut with “Dynamite,” which also stars Evanna Lynch (the “Harry Potter” franchise) as Bornstein’s wife, Carol Kane (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”), Brendan Sexton III (“The Killing”) and Chaske Spencer (“Twilight”).
Set in New York City in 1968, the story follows Bornstein, a part-time father and full-time dope fiend working within the underground, illegal porn industry. Even in the wake of a federal investigation, Max’s bigger concern was his family.
“We are thrilled to partner with Breaking Glass on the release of such a special film to us, with a very important and relevant message. Max has an unbelievable story that the world should learn about and from, and it’s wonderful knowing that our distributor recognizes this importance,” said Levine, who negotiated the deal with Breaking Glass CEO Rich Wolff.
