Sundance: William H. Macy's 'Dial a Prayer' Acquired by Vertical Entertainment
The film was written and directed by Maggie Kiley.
William H. Macy and Brittany Snow's drama Dial a Prayer has been acquired by Vertical Entertainment with plans for a spring 2015 release, the company announced on Saturday.
The deal was said to be made during a meeting at Sundance Film Festival. The film was written and directed by Maggie Kiley, with producers that include Jason Potash and Paul Finkel from Storyboard.
"What struck us from the beginning with this film is how it was able to pull us in so many different directions emotionally," read a statement from Rich Goldberg, co-president at Vertical Entertainment.
"This wasn't something we wanted to be a part of; it was something we had to be a part of and are extremely pleased that we are partnering on Dial a Prayer with a very creative team in Maggie, Jason and Paul," continued Goldberg.
The film revolves around a woman (Snow) who answers phones at a prayer call center operated by a religious leader (Macy).
