Cannes: Phase 4 Picks Up Allison Burnett's 'Ask Me Anything'
Phase 4 Films has acquired North American distribution rights to writer-director Allison Burnett’s Ask Me Anything.
Based on Burnett’s own novel, Undiscovered Gyrl, the film tells the story of young woman, played by Britt Robertson, who takes a year off before college to chronicle her adventures on an anonymous blog as she sets out to seduce a film professor (Justin Long) while resisting the advances of her married boss (Christian Slater).
The film was produced by Lauren Avinoam, Nicolas Emiliani and Lauren Hogarth. The cast also includes Kimberly Williams-Paisley and Martin Sheen.
The deal was negotiated by Phase 4's Larry Greenberg and Maren Olsen at Traction, on behalf of the filmmakers.
