Sayles Wraps Honeydripper

060713 Maggie Renzi, John Sayles' long-time producing partner, uses her new blog to announce the wrap of principal photography in Alabama on John Sayles' latest, his 16th feature, Honeydripper. They're working with Ira Deutchman's Emerging Pictures as their distribution outfit on this one, writes Renzi:

And I’m damned if after all this work we’re going to see another movie sacrificed to the Petty God of Bad Distribution. We’re working with Emerging Pictures to see if we can reach these 2 simple goals: see the movie reach its audiences, and see the filmmakers pocket the profits.

Stay tuned as we try to remake a broken system. Help us if you can.
