Grindstone Entertainment and Lionsgate will distribute "2br/1ba," an upcoming indie thriller directed by Rob Margolies and starring Alexa Vega ("Spy Kids") and Spencer Grammer ("Greek").
The film follows two polar-opposite roommates whose differences escalate and result in a 24-hour-long, all out battle over money, space and their morals. The film's synopsis reads: "Janie (Vega), is a troubled young woman who is balancing a move to a new city, no friends, and finding the funds to cover tuition after acceptance into an ivy league graduate program. She finds an affordable room for rent from a wealthy and lonely socialite, Dee (Grammer). While living together Dee discovers Janie has been hurting financially and is willing to do just about anything to get the funds she needs to pay her tuition, including selling her eggs for a quick wad of cash. Dee turns up the manipulation and catty tactics to an ultimate battle of "brains vs. beauty" with flying kitchen appliances, flying ice skates and unleashed pet snakes. The slow simmer of hatred between the girls comes to a full on boil in a fun, dark, and at times comedic series of barbaric acts."
Margolies previously directed "She Wants Me," starring Josh Gad, Hilary Duff, Kristen Ruhlin, Melonie Diaz and executive produced by Charlie Sheen. Lionsgate also handled distribution.
