Vera Farmiga, Andy Garcia to Star in Indie Film 'Admissions'
Andy Garcia and Vera Farmiga will topline Admissions, an indie romantic comedy being directed by Adam Rodgers. Garcia also will serve as a producer on the picture via his CineSon Productions.
Not to be confused with Focus Features' Tina Fey-Paul Rudd comedy titled Admission, Admissions sees Farmiga as a free-spirited mom taking her driven daughter on a walking tour of a beautiful small college. Garcia plays a buttoned-up heart surgeon who’s taking his son on the same tour. With the parents failing to connect with their respective children, they head off on their own, with a surprise romance blossoming.
The script was co-written by Rodgers, who directed the well-regarded short The Response, and Glenn German. German also will produce alongside Sig Libowitz under his Look at the Moon Productions banner.
Ellen Wander of Film Bridge International will executive produce along with Sonya Lunsford (The Help), with Wander and FBI handling international distribution.
The Paradigm Motion Picture Finance Group arranged the film’s financing and will sell domestic distribution rights.
Farmiga last appeared in Universal’s Safe House and recently wrapped supernatural horror thriller The Warren Files for New Line. She is repped by CAA, Authentic Talent and Literary Management and Peikoff Mahan.
Paradigm-repped Garcia, who produced and starred in the acclaimed indie hit City Island, will star in the upcoming indie films For Greater Glory and The Truth.
