Kristin Chenoweth's 'Hard Sell' Goes to Momentum Pictures for North America

Sean Nalaboff makes his feature film debut for Yellow Cote Productions.

Momentum Pictures has acquired North American rights to the Kristin Chenoweth-starring dramedy Hard Sell.

Writer-director Sean Nalaboff makes his feature film debut with the indie nabbed by the Entertainment One label. A day-and-date theatrical release in spring is planned. Nalaboff, Jimmy Seargeant and Jared Greenman are producing, via Yellow Cote Productions.

Hard Sell, which also stars Katrina Bowden and Skyler Gisondo, centers on Hardy Buchanan (Gisondo), a senior at an elite private school who struggles to support his unstable mom (Chenoweth). Desperate to make some quick cash, he enlists the help of Bo (Bowden), a beautiful runaway, and together they devise an unconventional plan of profiting off of the wayward teens at Hardy’s school. When the students learn that Bo has more to offer than what meets the eye, the unlikely duo’s new business takes a unique turn, tossing them headfirst into the lifestyles of the rich and dysfunctional.

"We're so thankful to have worked with this amazing group of people on Hard Sell and couldn't be more excited to share this story with audiences everywhere," said Nalaboff in a statement. "Momentum Pictures is a perfect fit for the release."

The deal was negotiated by Larry Greenberg for Momentum and by Greenman and attorney Paul Battista on behalf of the production.
