Weinstein arm RADiUS has nabbed US rights to buzzed-about Toronto title “Adult Beginners,” with a dreamy cast including Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale, Joel McHale, Josh Charles and of course Nick Kroll in the lead.
This is Oscar-nominated producer Ross Katz’s (“Lost In Translation”) feature directorial debut. Slated for a Spring 2015 release, the film centers on a young, self-obsessed entrepreneur (Kroll) who hits rock bottom on the eve of his company’s launch. He ups and moves out of Manhattan, and in with his estranged sister (Byrne), her husband (Cannavale) and 3-year-old kid in the suburbs. And he becomes their nanny.
Based on a story originated by Nick Kroll, “Adult Beginners” was written by Jeff Cox and Elizabeth Flahive and was produced by Sam Slater and Paul Bernon of Burn Later Productions, Marcus Cox and Karrie Cox of Through Films, Nick Kroll of Good at Bizness, Inc, Jared Ian Goldman and executive produced by Mark Duplass, Jay Duplass of Duplass Brothers Productions and David Bernon of Burn Later Productions
