Starz has acquired “One More Time,” a musical drama starring Christopher Walken and Amber Heard as a father and daughter, both musicians, who reunite after a lengthy estrangement.

The official synopsis for “One More Time” reads: “Beautiful aspiring rock star Jude (Heard) is stuck in a rut – relegated to recording commercial jingles and lost in a series of one night stands. When she is evicted from her Brooklyn apartment, she is forced to move into the Hamptons home of her wealthy – and selfish – father Paul Lombard (Walken), an over-the-hill, Sinatra-esque crooner angling for a musical comeback. As the two reunite, Jude is forced to confront her problems, including troubled relationships with her father and overachieving sister (Garner), as well as her wobbly career and faltering love life. As Jude and Paul butt heads, they unexpectedly find themselves on a journey that may redefine their lives.”

The film, which was titled “When I Live My Life Over Again” when it premiered at Tribeca earlier this year, was written and directed by Robert Edwards and also stars Oliver Platt, Hamish Linklater and Kelli Garner.

Starz is planning a theatrical run and an On Demand release through Starz Digital for 2016, followed by an exclusive TV premiere on STARZ.
