Max Landis‘ directorial debut “Me Him Her” has had its domestic distribution rights licensed by FilmBuff, which will release the comedy in select theaters and on all major VOD platforms on March 4, TheWrap has learned.
Luke Bracey (“Point Break”), Emily Meade (“The Leftovers”) and Dustin Milligan (“90210”) star in the movie, which hails from the prolific writer of “Chronicle” and “American Ultra.”
“Me Him Her” follows twenty-something drifter Corey (Milligan) as he arrives in Los Angeles to help his semi-famous TV star friend Brendan (Bracey) take his first steps out of the closet. As the media watches their every misstep, things get seriously complicated when Corey embarks on his own whirlwind, head-spinning, roller-coaster romance with the sharp-witted Gabbi (Meade), whose jealous ex is out for revenge.
“‘Me Him Her’ is a movie about identity and the idea that what makes you feel safe isn’t always what’s good for you,” said Landis. “It’s with immense happiness to see it set out on its own two feet, and that is all thanks to FilmBuff.”
A Big Beach production, “Me Him Her” co-stars Scott Bakula, Geena Davis, Alia Shawkat and Rebecca Drysdale. The film was produced by Peter Saraf and Marc Turtletaub, and executive produced by Darren M. Demetre and Leah Holzer. The distribution deal was negotiated by Jake Hanly of FilmBuff.
In addition to a limited theatrical release, “Me Him Her” will be available on major VOD platforms such as Amazon Instant Video, Comcast’s Xfinity TV, Google Play, iTunes, Time Warner Cable, Verizon FiOS, Vudu, and Xbox.
Founded in 2007, FilmBuff has released the Oscar-nominated Banksy documentary “Exit Through the Gift Shop” as well as Jared Leto‘s “Artifact,” Adam Carolla‘s “Road Hard,” the Aaron Swartz documentary “The Internet’s Own Boy,” the acclaimed genre film “Spring” and the Sundance Audience Award winner “Senna.”
Big Beach has produced over a dozen indie hits, ranging from “Little Miss Sunshine” to “Safety Not Guaranteed.” Its upcoming films include “About Ray” starring Naomi Watts, Elle Fanning and Susan Sarandon, and Jeff Nichols‘ “Loving” starring Joel Edgerton.
