Cinedigm Acquires The Asylum’s World War II Film Starring Chuck Liddell and Randy Couture D-DAY

LOS ANGELES, CA and NEW YORK, NY | June 6, 2019 – Cinedigm Corp. (NASDAQ: CIDM) announced today, the 75th anniversary of the historic D-Day landings, that it has acquired all North American distribution rights to the Asylum’s WWII film, D-DAY, starring Chuck Liddell (Former UFC Champion & Hall of Famer, Kick-Ass 2, Altitude), Randy Couture (Former UFC Champion & Hall of Famer, The Expendables 2 & 3), Weston Cage Coppola (211, Circus Kane), and Jesse Kove (On Wings of Eagles). Cinedigm will release the picture in select theaters, on demand and digitally on September 13, with a DVD release to follow later in the year.
Written by Geoff Meed and directed by Nick Lyon, D-DAY is based on the incredible true story of the elite Army Rangers of the 2nd Battalion.

As thousands of Allied soldiers storm the beaches of Normandy in an attempt to change the course of WWII,  Lt. Colonel James Rudder (Cage Coppola), Lt. General Omar Bradley (Liddell), and Major Cleveland Lytle (Couture) lead the 2nd Battalion behind enemy lines and into a firefight against an enemy that greatly outnumbers them. Scaling a one-hundred-foot cliff, these heroic rangers battle to secure a strategic position and destroy a battery of German-seized cannons.

“The Asylum has delivered a dramatic, action-packed WWII movie anchored by a strong leading performance from Weston Cage Coppola, “said Yolanda Macias, Cinedigm’s Executive Vice-President of Acquisitions. “With the 75th anniversary of D-Day this year, the film conveys the hardship and sacrifice of battle and pays tribute to the brave soldiers who endured so much to achieve this pivotal victory for us.”

“We have a long track record of success with Cinedigm,” said The Asylum COO, Paul Bales.  “With a smart, collaborative and experienced team in place, they really understand the evolving marketplace for independent movies, and we are thrilled to be partnering with them on D-DAY.”

The film was produced by David Michael Latt (Z NATION) and Executive Producer is David Rimawi (BLACK SUMMER).
