Described as a romantic dramedy, "Guy" centers on Bledel's character, a Manhattan urban conservationist who falls for a Wall Street operator (Porter).

"This is an entertaining, provocative film about three great subjects: love, money and New York City," Roadside's Howard Cohen said.

The film, which debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival, will be released theatrically in March.

"Guy" was produced by Linda Moran and Rene Bastian of Belladonna Prods. as well as DePietro. Mandate International is handling foreign sales.

The acquisition was brokered by Greg Bernstein and Cohen for Roadside and Andrew Herwitz of the Film Sales Co. on behalf of the filmmakers.
