(Nasdaq: CSSE) company and one of the largest operators of streaming advertising-supported video-on-demand (AVOD) networks, announced today that dramatic mystery film Exit Plan will be exclusively available for free on Crackle beginning Thursday, April 15.
A second feature collaboration between director Jonas Alexander Arnby (When Animals Dream) and writer Rasmus Birch (When Animals Dream, Brotherhood), the film stars Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Game of Thrones) and Tuva Novotny (Eat Pray Love, Annihilation).
