Moving Pictures Film and Television has acquired Tatiana von Furstenberg and Francesca Gregorini’s "Tanner Hall" for theatrical distribution near the end of August.
The coming-of-age film stars Amy Sedaris, Tom Everett Scott, Chris Kattan, Rooney Mara, Brie Larson, Amy Ferguson and Georgia King.
"Tanner Hall" is set in an all-girls boarding school in New England where the arrival of a new student jeopardizes the close-knit friendship of a group of four girls, one of whom becomes romantically involved with a married man.
The film will be featured as part of the Gen Art Film Festival, with a private screening scheduled for April 12 in New York. Julie R. Snyder produced the film while Richard L. Bready served as exec producer.
Santa Monica-based MPF&TV was launched by Margaret Tritch and film sales veteran Ted Chalmers. The company’s senior acquisitions exec Gary Hirsch negotiated the deal with Submarine Pictures’ Josh Braun and attorney Craig Emanuel of Loeb & Loeb.
