ShortHistoryOfDecayPaladin plans an April theatrical release for A Short History Of Decay, a comedy from writer-director Michael Maren that premiered at the Hamptons Film Festival in October. Bryan Greenberg, Linda Lavin, Harris Yulin, Kathleen Rose Perkins and Emmanuelle Chriqui star in the pic, which centers on a struggling Brooklyn writer (Greenberg) dumped by his girlfriend who must visit his sick father in Florida and discovers his aging parents are in much better control of their lives than he is. The deal was negotiated by Paladin president Mark Urman and attorney Alfred Sapse, who also produced the pic. ARC Entertainment has pacted for all post-theatrical domestic rights.
