Ahead of the Toronto International Film Festival, Factory 25 has taken U.S. theatrical rights to Pavan Moondi’s Canadian indie comedy Sundowners.
Factory 25 plans a late 2017 release, while The Orchard is partnering on the Phil Hanley and Luke Lalonde starrer by taking U.S. and U.K. digital releasing rights. Written, directed and edited by Moondi, Sundowners stars comedian Hanley of Comedy Central’s The Half Hour and musician Lalonde of the rock band Born Ruffians as two struggling videographers who take a job filming a wedding in Mexico. Meanwhile, their boss (Tim Heidecker) proves fast and loose with the details and throws lots of obstacles in their way.
The pic was produced by Julia Rosenberg, Tyler Levine and Brian Robertson.
Factory 25 previously released a feature by Moondi and co-director Brian Robertson, Diamond Tongues.
The deal for Sundowners was negotiated by Maïté Alvarez on behalf of The Orchard and Matt Grady for Factory 25, with Submarine Entertainment’s Ben Braun and Lawyer Danny Webber acting for the filmmakers.
