Magnolia Pictures has announced that the acquisition of world rights to writer-director Andrew Bujalski’s “Results,” ahead of its premiere at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival next week.
The comedy stars Guy Pearce, Cobie Smulders, Kevin Corrigan, Giovani Ribisi, Anthony Michael Hall, Brooklyn Decker and Constance Zimmer and is set in the fitness world of Austin, TX. The synopsis continues: “Corrigan plays Danny, a recently divorced, newly rich, and utterly miserable slob who makes a stab at self-improvement by signing up for a personal trainer at a local gym. There he meets self-styled guru-owner Trevor (Pearce) and irresistibly acerbic trainer Kat (Smulders). Soon, their three lives are inextricably knotted, both professionally and personally.”
“We’ve been long time fans of Andrew Bujalski, one of the most distinctive American directors working today,” said Magnolia’s President Eamonn Bowles in a statement. “We are incredibly excited to be handling ‘Results,’ especially with the stellar cast he’s assembled.”
“Hey, thanks,” said director Andrew Bujalski.
Magnolia is planning a summer theatrical release for the film.
