AFM 2012: Lindsay Lohan, Adrien Brody Sketch Comedy Goes to Freestyle
Freestyle Releasing has nabbed North American rights to InaPPropriate Comedy, starring Adrien Brody, Lindsay Lohan, Michelle Rodriguez and Rob Schneider.
News of the domestic acquisition comes as Highland Film Group shops the project to foreign buyers at the American Film Market, which is underway in Santa Monica.
Freestyle is planning a North American theatrical release for the movie, followed by a DVD and VOD release via Freestyle Digital Media.
Directed by Robert B. Shapiro, the film is produced by Shapiro and Ken Pringle for Square One Entertainment.
InaPPropriate Comedy is billed as a no-holds-barred movie starring Brody as Flirty Harry, a tough, no-nonsense cop with a soft middle and a flair for fashion; Lohan living out her fantasy of taking an ultimate revenge on the salivating paparazzi who haunt her; Schneider in a dual role as both a sleazy, horny psychologist and a curmudgeonly porn critic alongside his enthusiastic counterpart (Rodriguez); and Ari Shaffir as “The Amazing Racist,“ whose hilariously offensive hidden-camera encounters with members of different ethnic and minority groups push everyone’s buttons.
The deal was negotiated by Freestyle’s co-president Susan Jackson, Hal Sadoff and attorneys Andrew Hurwitz and Alan Sacks of Frankfurt Kurnit Klein & Selz.
