Roadside Attractions has acquired worldwide rights to Julio DePietro’s “The Good Guy,” which premiered earlier this year at the Tribeca Film Festival. The film stars Alexis Bledel, Scott Porter, Anna Chlumsky and Bryan Greenberg, and will be released the theatrically in March 2010, with Mandate International handling foreign sales. The film was produced by Linda Moran and Rene Bastian of Belladonna Productions as well as DePietro.
The film follows Beth (Bledel), who falls hard for Tommy (Porter), a “young Wall Street hot-shot.” But just as everything seems to be falling into place, complications arise in the form of Tommy’s sensitive and handsome co-worker Daniel (Greenberg).
“This is an entertaining, provocative film about three great subjects – love, money, and New York City,” said Roadside’s Howard Cohen in a statement. “We think the stellar cast will attract a lot of young fans, but anyone who’s ever dreamt of making it in the big apple will relate to this story.”
“We really wanted to make a fun date movie that men would actually like as much as women, and I think Alexis’ fans will be happy to finally see her playing a much more grown-up role,” added writer/director DePietro in a statement.
The deal was brokered by Greg S. Bernstein and Cohen for Roadside and Andrew Herwitz of The Film Sales Company on behalf of the filmmakers.
Post Grad Blu-ray Details and Cover Art
Fox Home Entertainment has announced a January 12 release date for Post Grad starring Alexis Bledel (Gilmore Girls) and Zach Gilford (Friday Night Lights) on Blu-ray Disc and DVD.
The romantic comedy failed to find legs at the box office with a total take of $6.4 million. Fox hopes it will fare better on Blu-ray with a 1.85:1 1080p transfer and 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio presentation.
Despite the poor box office run, Fox has packed in an unusually large number of bonus features that will be shared between the standard and high-def versions.
