Sundance: Adam Scott’s ‘The Overnight’ Acquired by Orchard

Taylor Schilling, Jason Schwartzman and Judith Godrèche also star

The Orchard has acquired North American distribution rights to Sundance comedy “The Overnight,” the company announced Monday.

Adam Scott, Taylor Schilling, Jason Schwartzman and Judith Godrèche star in the sex comedy, described as a painfully funny take on thirty-something sexual frustration and parenthood, written and directed by Patrick Brice.

Mark Duplass produced for Duplass Brothers Productions along with Naomi Scott, who runs Gettin’ Rad Productions with her actor-husband, Adam.

“We were obsessed with ‘The Overnight’ from the minute we laid eyes on it,” said The Orchard’s SVP Film and TV Paul Davidson. “It’s a rare intelligent comedy backed up by an even rarer team of smart, passionate filmmakers. We are thrilled to be a part of it.”

Orchard committed to an aggressive P&A spend to support a wide theatrical release in 2015 after winning the film in a bidding war at Sundance.
