Lynn Shelton's Laggies Sold at Sundance
Two days after its Friday premiere at Sundance, The Hollywood Reporter revealed that director Lynn Shelton’s arrested-development dramedy Laggies had been bought by A24 for approximately $2 million.
The film, which stars Keira Knightley and Chloe Moretz as an existentially lost 28-year-old woman and the teenager she befriends, respectively, looks like it’ll become Shelton’s highest-profile project to date. Building on the momentum of 2012’s Your Sister’s Sister and 2013’s Touchy Feely, Laggies will benefit from its A-list actresses and the distribution talents of A24, the company behind last year’s female-centric The Bling Ring and The Spectacular Now.
