Universal Pictures Home Entertainment Content Group has acquired the North American rights to “An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn,” starring Aubrey Plaza and Emile Hirsch.
The feature made its world premiere at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival. Jim Hosking directed the film that he also co-wrote with David Wike. Jemaine Clement, Matt Berry and Craig Robinson also star.
Sam Bisbee, Theodora Dunlap, Oliver Roskill, Emily Leo, Lucan Toh and Andy Starke served as producers on the film.
UPHE Content Group is planning a release for the film later this year.
“An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn” follows Lulu Danger (Plaza), who is trapped in a dissatisfying marriage with her husband Shane (Hirsch). Fired from her job, Lulu sees a TV commercial for “An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn For One Magical Night Only” that reveals a mysterious man from her past, and Lulu sets out to find him.
“I’m thrilled to be working with UPHE Content Group to fully unleash ‘An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn’ to the entire United States,” said director Jim Hosking. “We are going to have great fun working together and I intend to buy some luxuriously wide trousers and extra pointy boots for the premiere.”
International rights are handled by Protagonist Pictures. UTA Independent Film Group negotiated the deal on behalf of the filmmakers.
