He’s come a long way since his R.A days. “Felicity” star Scott Foley’s new film “Let’s Kill Ward’s Wife” has just been picked up by Tribeca Film and Well Go USA. Written, directed and co-produced by Foley, the film is a dark comedy about a group of friends who hate their buddy’s wife and want to kill her — even Ward joins in on the fantasy. But when their silly plot becomes an accidental reality, the boys face a whole new onslaught of problems.
The film stars Foley (“Scandal”), Amy Acker (“Much Ado About Nothing”), James Carpinello (“Gangster Squad”), Donald Faison (“Scrubs”), Patrick Wilson (“Watchmen,” “The Conjuring”) and many more. Carpinello and Wilson are also co-producers of the film.
On the acquisition, Foley said “Patrick, James and I are thrilled that our passion project has garnered so much interest. “Let’s Kill Ward’s Wife” is a movie that we’re all very close to and we know that Tribeca Film and Well Go USA is the perfect home for our film.”
Director of the Tribeca Film Festival Geoff Gilmore praised the film: “Scott Foley leads a stellar ensemble in his delightful directorial debut, the pitch black comedy “Let’s Kill Ward’s Wife.” A playful, funny even slightly perverse look at marriage and friends, this is a wonderfully funny satire that will engage and provoke anyone who has ever contemplated ways to end a bad relationship.”
The deal was negotiated by Alison Diviney for Tribeca Film and Alex Saks of ICM along with Will Lowery of APA on behalf of the filmmakers. The film will release on video-on-demand platforms in December 2014, followed by a theatrical release in January 2015.
