A24 has picked up the worldwide rights to Augustine Frizzell’s “Never Goin’ Back,” an individual with knowledge of the project told TheWrap.

Maia Mitchell and Cami Morrone star in this raunchy comedy about two girls who plan to take a weekend birthday trip to the sea side, but everything goes wrong before they can do so.

The film made its world premiere at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival and is expected to screen at SXSW Film Festival in Austin next week.

Frizzell also wrote the script. Toby Halbrooks, James M. Johnston, David Lowery, and Liz Cardenas produced, and A24 will release the film sometime this year.

“I am beyond thrilled to partner with A24 on the release of ‘Never Goin’ Back,'” Frizzell said. “They’re my dream company and consistently put out my favorite films every year (and with the coolest marketing campaigns!)”

Kyle Mooney, Aristotle Abraham II and Joel Allen also star in the film.

Endeavor Content negotiated the deal on behalf of the filmmakers.
