Film Mode Entertainment is thrilled to announce their acquisition and release of ALLEYCATS, the new, adrenaline-pumped action-thriller produced by UK-based The Fyzz Facility and Misfits Entertainment and featuring Eleanor Tomlinson (POLDARK, JACK THE GIANT SLAYER, THE WHITE QUEEN), John Hannah (THE MUMMY, SPARTACUS, AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D), Sonoya Mizuno (EX MACHINA, LA LA LAND), John Lynch (BLACK DEATH, THE TOURNAMENT) and Sam Keeley. (BURNT, IN THE HEART OF THE SEA, ANTHROPOID). The cast alone brings in tens if not hundreds of millions of dollars in aggregate box office sales as well as ever-expanding fan-bases.



ALLEYCATS is the feature directorial debut of acclaimed director Ian Bonhôte.



ALLEYCATS will be released across North America through Film Mode Entertainment on December 15, 2016 via iTunes, Amazon and Google.



This will be Film Mode’s first release in their efforts to diversify and provide producers with the best opportunities to reach an audience.  



“The Film Mode Entertainment team is extremely excited to announce our very first release on December 15th of this year, in an effort to diversify our services and continually bridge the gap between the filmmaker and the marketplace.” Said Clay Epstein, President of Film Mode Entertainment.



“ALLEYCATS is the perfect first release for us as it is a uniquely commercially viable film that stays true to its artistic integrity and is sure to be well received among audiences all across North America.”



ALLEYCATS is a high-octane action-thriller set in London against the backdrop of the cutthroat world of illegal bike racing. When bike courier Chris witnesses what looks like a murder, his first instinct is to cut and run. However, when his curiosity draws him back in, he soon finds himself embroiled in a world of corruption, political power and illegal bike racing.



Said Bonhôte: “I am extremely excited to see the journey of our film ‘ALLEYCATS’, carries on. The film has already been released in over 10 territories worldwide, so to be able to bring it to the US audience is a massive honour.



Clay (Epstein) at Film Mode Entertainment has been amazing for us. His dedication and experience of the market place is second to none and it is further proof that a film that begins with a Kickstarter campaign can make it all the way into the global marketplace as long as it has the right team behind it.”



The film was co-produced and financed via Misfits Entertainment and The Fyzz Facility. Andee Ryder (GET SOME, VIKING DESTINY) is lead producer alongside co-producer Emma Lamont (THE LAST CHANCE SCHOOL, BAD BOYS). With Wayne Marc Godfrey (THE FOREIGNER, THE SURVIVALIST) and Robert Jones (THE USUAL SUSPECTS, BABYLON) executive producing alongside Arnaud Lannic and Ian Bonhôte.
