After a successful run at this year's Tribeca Film Festival, "Loitering with Intent," a film that follows out of work actors turned screenwriters, has been picked up for U.S. distribution by the Orchard.

"Loitering with Intent," which is written by Michael Godere and Ivan Martin (who also star), is a movie, like many this year, that takes a hard look at the film industry. After premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year, the film has now been acquired by The Orchard.

Directed by Adam Rapp, "Loitering with Intent" follows two actors who travel to the countryside in order to write a screenplay that can help revitalize their careers. The film also stars Sam Rockwell, Marisa Tomei and Natasha Lyonne.

"The heart of this film is about friendship. Michael and Ivan created great characters and a great atmosphere to work in. We had a ball bringing this world to life," said Marisa Tomei in a statement, who is also a producer of the film.

A release date has yet to be announced, but The Orchard will distribute the film both theatrically and via VOD.
