A little bit of luck and money are coming to Juno Temple and Michael Angarano in “The Brass Teapot,” an offbeat comedy set to make its world premiere at TIFF next month. Now the first images from the film have landed.
Co-starring Alexis Bledel, Alia Shawkat, Bobby Moynihan, Matt Walsh and more, the film is an expansion of a 2007 short written by Tim Macy, based on his short story, and is directed by commercial and music video helmer Ramaa Mosley, and both are again on board for the feature version. Here’s the official synopsis: John and Alice are in their 20s, married, very much in love, and broke. In high school, gorgeous Alice was voted “most likely to succeed” but now she’s just trying to make ends meet while her friends are enjoying the good life. Her husband John, loving but immature, just wants to get the bills paid. After they get into an accident and end up at a roadside antique shop, Alice is uncharacteristically drawn to shoplift a brass teapot. It isn’t long before they realize this is no ordinary teapot.
There is no distributor on board for this one yet, but we’ll soon see if it can deliver the laughs.
