Starz has acquired U.S. distribution rights to the comedic love story Tumbledown, which premiered at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival.
Starz Digital said it is planning a nationwide theatrical release around Valentine’s Day, 2016 to be followed by an on-demand release, and then a pay TV premiere on Starz.
Directed by Sean Meshaw, the film stars Rebecca Hall, Jason Sudeikis, Dianna Agron, Blythe Danner, Griffin Dunne, Joe Manganiello and Richard Masur. Desiree Van Til’s original screenplay concerns a woman, played by Hall, coping with the death of her husband, who meets a New York academic, played by Sudeikis.
Kristin Hahn of Hahnscape Entertainment, Bron Studios’ Aaron L. Gilbert, and Margot Hand produced the film. Jason Cloth and Van Til served as executive producers.
Mewshaw and Van Til are managed by Anonymous Content. CAA represented the filmmakers in the deal.
