(LOS ANGELES, CA – March 19, 2012)FilmBuff picked up worldwide digital distribution rights for Blayne Weaver’s romantic dramedy, 6 Month Rule. Weaver (Weather Girl) leads a talented ensemble cast that includes Martin Starr (Party Down, Adventureland), Natalie Morales (Parks and Recreation, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps), Patrick J. Adams (Suits, Weather Girl), Vanessa Branch (Pirates of the Caribbean), John Michael Higgins (Bad Teacher, A Mighty Wind), Dave Foley (News Radio, The Kids in the Hall) and Jaime Pressly (My Name Is Earl).
Written and directed by Weaver, 6 Month Rule is a romantic, charming, and poignant look at relationships seen through the eyes of Tyler. The character lives by a personal philosophy that allows him to avoid making any significant connections with women. He frequently boasts that he can get over any woman in 6 months or less, denying his fear of emotional attachment. His best friend (Martin Starr) has just become Tyler’s pet project, as he tries to teach his buddy about the joys of cold-hearted bachelorhood. Will Tyler ultimately discover that no philosophy is set in stone?
6 Month Rulewill be released theatrically beginning in New York on June 1st & Los Angeles June 8th, with additional cities to follow through the distributor Abramorama. Richard Abramowitz will be overseeing the limited theatrical; FilmBuff will then release the film onto all major digital platforms in July 2012.
