Amber Heard also stars in the film that will get a theatrical release.

The North American rights to One More Time, starring Christopher Walken, have been picked up by Starz.

The film follows an aspiring rock star, played by The Danish Girl's Amber Heard, who must move back in with her old crooner father (Walken) in the Hamptons after she is evicted from her apartment.

Hamish Linklater and Kelli Garner also star in the dramedy that was written and directed by Robert Edwards.

Starz is planning a 2016 multiplatform release that includes theatrical and on-demand output through its Starz Digital banner.

Lars Knudsen and Jay Van Hoy produced the film, along with Ferne Pearlstein, Lucas Joaquin, Saemi Kim, Saerom Kim and Chris Maybach. Oliver Simon, Daniel Baur, Lee Tae-hun, Eugene Lee, Thomas Benski, Lucas Ochoa and Robert Kaplan served as executive producers.

CAA negotiated the deal on behalf of the filmmakers. The deal has been in the works since the film, previously titled When I Live My Life Over Again, screened at the Tribeca Film Festival.

Starz Digital’s upcoming releases include Jason Bateman’s The Family Fang. That film also stars Walken as well as Nicole Kidman and Maryann Plunkett.
