‘Lionsgate latches to Kinkade’



“Lionsgate and the Firm are partnering on a feature adaptation of Thomas Kinkade’s painting The Christmas Cottage, aiming for a holiday season release.” (source) Now get this: “Kinkade’s company asserts it’s sold $1.7 billion of artwork at retail over the past 15 years along with $2.4 billion in licensed product sales - such as greeting cards and calendars - over the past decade, resulting in Kinkade art being found in one out of every 10 U.S. households.” Yes, that’s right, that’s “billion”.
