Camelot Title, Starring Richard Jenkins, to be Released Theatrically by AMC Independent

Universal City, CA – (October 11, 2011) Camelot Entertainment Group, Inc. (OTCBB: CMGR) (“Camelot”) and Camelot Distribution Group (”CDG”) announced today that NORMAN, directed and produced by Jonathan Segal, will be released theatrically through AMC Independent on October 21 in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, Seattle, and Spokane before expanding nationwide.  The film stars Dan Byrd (“Cougar Town”, Easy A, “Heroes”), Emily VanCamp (“Revenge”, “Brothers and Sisters”), Academy Award nominee Richard Jenkins (The Visitor, Step Brothers) and Adam Goldberg (Saving Private Ryan, A Beautiful Mind) and has received numerous awards on the festival circuit, including the Silver Hugo New Directors Competition at the Chicago International Film Festival.

“’NORMAN’ takes its audience through a broad spectrum of emotions yet is ultimately uplifting and optimistic and speaks to all ages, so we’re excited for the general public to finally have access to it,” stated Segal.  “The film, like 50/50 and “The Big C”, touches on subject matter that unfortunately and sadly plays a role in so many people’s lives.  I also hope the film will be used to help amplify the conversation about the hidden issue of teen depression and suicide.”

The film’s soundtrack, featuring original score by Andrew Bird, Wolf Parade, Chad VanGaalen, and The Blow with Richard Swift, is due out October 11 on Mom + Pop Records.

NORMAN tells the story of Norman Long (Byrd), a self-aware and darkly funny teen who is trying to handle his daily high school exercise. An unexpected set of life-changing circumstances turns his world upside down and then ultimately right side up as he meets the magnetic Emily (VanCamp).

CDG holds the right internationally and screened the film in Cannes this past May.
