Fresh from its Tribeca Film Festival premiere last month, new director Jesse Zwick’s “About Alex” has been acquired by Screen Media Films. The twenty-something centric drama boasts a trendy cast, including Aubrey Plaza, Max Greenfield, Jason Ritter, Maggie Grace, and Jane Levy.
When one of them suffers an emotional breakdown, a group of friends reunite for a weekend in the woods. But the combination of old jealousies, love interests, and booze amps up the tension in each adult friendship. “Jesse Zwick’s film is one of the strongest debuts we’ve seen in years,” said Seth Needle, Director of Acquisitions & Marketing, at Screen Media. “We can’t wait for audiences to discover the extraordinary chemistry shared by this talented ensemble cast.”
The film will hit theaters and VOD simultaneously on August 8th, 2014.
