FilmBuff Acquires U.S. and VOD Rights to Rob Pearlstein's "Someone Marry Barry"

Josephson Entertainment, Madrose Productions, and Straight Up Films announced that digital curator FilmBuff will release the romantic comedy “Someone Marry Barry” in theaters and on VOD on February 13, 2014.

Written, directed and produced by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Rob Pearlstein (“Our Time Is Up”), the film stars Tyler Labine, Damon Wayans Jr., Lucy Punch, Hayes MacArthur Thomas Middleditch, Lauren Miller, and Joe LoTruglio. Equal parts irreverent and charming, “Someone Marry Barry” follows three childhood friends who plot to pawn off their socially inappropriate friend Barry on a woman. But when Barry finally meets the girl of his dreams, she turns out to be even worse than he is.

“We are thrilled to be working with Rob on this hilarious and thoroughly original romantic comedy,” said Steven Beckman, FilmBuff’s Head of Content Partnerships, in a statement. “We fell in love with Barry and Mel and know that audiences will as well.”

Creative Artists Agency and Marc H. Simon, who also served as an executive producer, negotiated the deal with Beckman on behalf of the filmmakers.
