EARLIER: Samuel Goldwyn Films has scheduled a spring 2014 release of co-writer/directors Geoff Moore and David Posamentier’s directorial debut “Better Living Through Chemistry,” starring Sam Rockwell and Olivia Wilde. Here’s the synopsis:
The film stars Sam Rockwell as a small town pharmacist whose uneventful life turns into a walk on the wild side when he embarks on a drug-and-alcohol fueled affair with a seductive customer, played by Olivia Wilde, in this murderously funny dark comedy.
Stars Rockwell and Wilde both enjoyed acclaimed supporting turns in 2013 indies, for “The Way Way Back” and “Drinking Buddies” respectively, so there’s high hopes for their onscreen “Chemistry.”
Produced by Occupant Entertainment, “Better Living Through Chemistry”‘s eclectic cast includes Michelle Monaghan, Ray Liotta and Jane Fonda. Samuel Goldwyn Films will handle U.S. theatrical release, while Universal will distribute the film internationally and on home video markets.
