‘Extremely Unique Dynamic’ Set for North American Release

Extremely Unique Dynamic,” a comedy drama film that plays at the Frameline Festival in San Francisco, is set for release later this year in North America.

North American rights to the picture were acquired by distributor Strand Releasing, which says it plans a late fall theatrical release.

The U.S.-produced film chronicles “two best friends who test the limits of their relationship while making a triple-meta movie.” It had its debut in March at the Sonoma International Film Festival and followed that with appearance at Inside Out and CAAMFest.

The film is directed by Ivan Leung and Harrison Xu and stars Leung (“The Tender Bar”), Xu (“Last Summer of Nathan Lee”), Hudson Yang (“Fresh Off the Boat”) and Nathan Dean (“Ginormo”). Cinematography is by Steven Shulgach, editing by Michael Scotti Jr., sound design by Nikola Simikic and the original score by Ian Mackley. 

The film was produced by Leung and Xu through their Heroic Impact company. Noel Do-Murakami (upcoming “Skill House”) served as a producer. Michael Scott Jr. (“Pen15,” “Daisy Jones & The Six”) served as an associate producer. Katherine Dudas (“Juniper”) served as a co-writer and co-director. 

The rights deal was struck by Jon Gerrans of Strand Releasing and producer, co-writer and co-director, Xu.

“We’re thrilled to be working with Harrison and Ivan, their debut film has a really kinetic energy that exudes the film’s title, they’re really a great filmmaking duo,” said Marcus Hu, of Strand Releasing. 

“It is truly a dream to partner with the beloved Strand Releasing on our debut feature. Strand has always championed quality and diversity in filmmaking, catering to audiences interested in unique and thought-provoking cinema beyond Hollywood’s mainstream offerings. We had so much fun making this movie, and we hope that audiences feel that same sense of joy in watching our film,” said Xu and Leung.
