“We’re very energized to be partnered with RLJE Films on the release of THE FRIENDSHIP GAME – this is the kind of film they always rock with,” said Producer Daniel Bekerman. “Scooter is a filmmaker to watch and combined with Damien’s mind bending and terrifying script, they took this movie past our wildest expectations.
