J.K. Simmons’ ‘The Bachelors’ Acquired by Freestyle Digital Media (Exclusive)

Cannes 2017: Indie label owned by Byron Allen’s Entertainment Studios takes Kurt Voelker father-son drama

Freestyle Digital Media has picked up domestic distribution rights to Kurt Voekler’s father-son drama “The Bachelors,” an individual familiar with the deal told TheWrap.

The film stars J.K. Simmons as a recently widowed father who moves with his teenage son across the country after accepting a private school teaching job. While there, they meet two women who help them heal from the pain and find a way forward. Odeya Rush, Josh Wiggins, and Julie Delpy also star.

The deal was made by Dan Fisher, VP Acquisitions and Rachel Koehler, Director of Acquisitions at Freestyle, with CAA and The Gersh Agency. The deal comes two years after Freestyle was acquired by Entertainment Studios, who has bolstered the acquisitions engine with cash.
