Brian O’Shea‘s The Exchange has nabbed international sales rights to Sundance comedy Obvious Child and will rep the title at next month’s European Film Market in Berlin.
A24 paid a reported low seven figures for North American rights to the film, dubbed an “abortion comedy” and starring stand-up comedian and Parks and Recreation alum Jenny Slate.
Written and directed by first-timer Gillian Robespierre, Obvious Child stars Slate as a Brooklyn comedian who, after getting dumped and fired, finds out she is pregnant. As her date with Planned Parenthood for a scheduled abortion draws near, she must confront her doubts and fears like never before. The film also stars Jake Lacy (The Office), David Cross (Arrested Development) and Gaby Hoffmann (Crystal Fairy).
Elisabeth Holm produced Obvious Child with Robespierre and David Kaplan executive produced with Rooks Nest Entertainment, Sundial Pictures, Votiv Films and Slate.
