‘L.A. Times’ Actors Offer Risqué Previews to Quirky West Coast Comedy (Video)

Sundance 2017: Film about thirty-something romance in Los Angeles has nothing to do with newspaper of same name

There’s a movie debuting at Sundance this year called “L.A. Times” — and no — it’s not about the newspaper of the same name.

Starring Jorma Taccone, Michelle Morgan (who also wrote and directed), Dree Hemingway, the three spoke with TheWrap’s Steve Pond from this year’s film festival in Park City, Utah.

The comedy is a plucky take on thirty-something romance in Los Angeles as they try to determine whether ideal happiness exists in coupledom or if the perfectly suited twosome is actually just an urban myth.

The actors wanted everyone to know the salacious topics that arise — and don’t arise — in the film, including prostitution.

Taccone admitted that’s the raciest thing his character gets entangled with in the comedy, but adds: “He was driven to it!”

As for the newspaper, L.A. Times film writer Mark Olsen pointed out his media organization had nothing to do with the film, adding that when this year’s Sundance slate came out, “There were some very quizzical looks around the newsroom, as if people were afraid they had been in a documentary and/or reality show without knowing it.”

Fear not, L.A. Times — “L.A. Times” does not have you covered.
