ARC Entertainment is in Santa Monica and plans a spring 2015 theatrical and video-on-demand release, the reports said.

“The Barber” cost about $1 million to make, according to production company chief executive and Dodge Dean Bob Bassett. The company raised money from investors to make the film.

The thriller was written, produced and directed by Chapman alumni. It stars Scott Glenn and Stephen Tobolowsky.

In September, CFE sold marketing rights to Los Angeles-based the Little Film Co. and promoted the movie that month at the Toronto International Film Festival and in October at the Busan (Korea) International Film Festival.

Little Film Co. is marketing international rights at the American Film Market trade show and conference in Santa Monica, which runs through Nov. 12.
