Seann William Scott stars as a man who wants to end it all

Starz has acquired the rights to Just Before I Go, the feature directorial debut of Courteney Cox.

Starz picked up all rights for the U.S. and Canada with a deal finalizing as the Toronto Film Festival got underway.

Just Before I Go stars Seann William Scott as a man who has given up on life and decides to head home to settle unfinished business before ending it all. Once there, however, some surprises and resolutions get him to rethink his decision.

The film also counts Rob Riggle, Garret Dillahunt, Kate Walsh, David Arquette and Olivia Thirlby among its cast.

The dark comedy was written by David Flebotte, whose credits include Desperate Housewives and Boardwalk Empire, and it recently debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival.

The movie was produced by Cox and Thea Mann for Coquette and Gabriel Cowan for New Artists Alliance. Executive producing were Arquette, Alexandria Jackson, John C. Rhee and John Suits.

The deal was negotiated by WME Global and Kevin Kasha of Starz.
