iW NEWS | Roadside Makes Worldwide Deal for "Starting Out In The Evening"

Andrew Wagner‘s “Starting Out In The Evening” from this year’s Sundance Film Festival has been acquired by Roadside Attractions for worldwide distribution. Starring Tony Award winner for “Frost/NixonFrank Langella, the film was hailed by critics at Sundance (including a review from indieWIRE’s Anthoy Kaufman). The final film produced under the InDigEnt banner, “Starting Out In The Evening” is the story of a complex relationship that develops between an aging Manhattan writer and a young female fan. Roadside is planning a Fall release for the film, with an eye on awards season attention for Langella. “This is Frank’s year in the theater and people will soon discover that the same is true for film,” said Roadside co-presidents Howard Cohen and Eric d’Arbeloff, in a statement today. “Andrew Wagner has crafted an extraordinary and moving film about one man’s literary life in Manhattan. The role of Leonard Schiller might be a career-best film performance for Frank — one that audiences everywhere will love.” Langella co-stars with Lauren Ambrose, Lili Taylor and Adrian Lester. The script was adapted by Andrew Wagner and Fred Parness from the novel by Brian Morton. Cohen and d’Arbeloff negotiated the deal with Cinetic Media and announced on Monday that Robbie Little of The Little Film Company will handle international sales for the film. [Eugene Hernandez]
