The Orchard Signs Two-Picture Deal With JKLC Films To Release New Films For The UFO Genre Titled “Bob Lazar” And “Hunt For The Skinwalker”

Mar 27, 2018


Los Angeles, California – March 27, 2018 – The Orchard announced today it has signed a two-picture deal with JKLC Films to release two new films for the UFO genre entitled Bob Lazar and Hunt For The Skinwalker in late 2018. Following the success of Patient Seventeen, investigative filmmaker Jeremy Kenyon Lockyer Corbell has brought two of the most influential UFO-related stories in modern history to life, breaking new ground on recently revealed government UFO programs. The films continue The Orchard’s success in the UFO genre, following the distribution company’s release of Michael Mazzola’s Unacknowledged: The Greatest Secret In Human History, the highest grossing documentary on iTunes for 2017.

Bob Lazar, former Government Physicist, remains the singular most famous and controversial name in the world of UFOs. Over the years Lazar has remained elusive, and for the most part, silent. His disclosures have turned his life upside-down and he has tried to stay out of the spot-light. For this reason, he has never let any filmmaker into the private world of his daily life – that is – until now. Corbell’s film, Bob Lazar, will explore Lazar’s claims through the lens of thirty years – providing rare and never before revealed footage – guaranteed to alter the landscape of the debate.

“I know there are alien craft here from another planet. I saw nine, but I was INSIDE one. I know it was not made on Earth. I know it was made with materials that we cannot fabricate, and we cannot duplicate… we’ve never been able to,” says Bob Lazar. “It’s nothing I would have ever expected to see. I also know that we have examined bodies of alien creatures. I know this for a fact, and that’s the bottom line.”

Based on the best-selling book by George Knapp & Dr. Colm Kelleher, Hunt for The Skinwalker is a documentary about the most intensive scientific study of a paranormal hotspot in human his-tory. In 1996 a real estate mogul and self-made billionaire, Robert Bigelow (of Bigelow Aero-space) purchased 480 acres of land in northern Utah for use as a “living laboratory” – to study the UFO phenomenon.

“I’m excited to work with The Orchard to release these two groundbreaking films on the subject of UFOs, and the government’s involvement in the subject,” said Jeremy Kenyon Lockyer Cor-bell, founder of JKLC Films. “These stories have been kept from the public for thirty years, and with the recent news coverage and the Pentagon’s admission of an active program studying these issues, there is now a unique opportunity to share them with a wide audience. I’m both excited and hopeful that the UFO problem will be illuminated in a sophisticated and newsworthy way.”

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Jeremy on these historic releases,” said Jim Martin, at The Orchard. “As fans of the content we’re excited to learn the true story behind these secret events that have been kept from the public for decades and will shift the discussion of the UFO phenomenon.”
