The indie is planning a fall 2015 release for the Cynthia Nixon and Christopher Abbott starrer.

The Film Arcade has bought U.S. distribution rights to James White from writer-director Josh Mond and Borderline Films after a world premiere at Sundance.

Christopher Abbott and Cynthia Nixon star in Mond's first feature, about a New York slacker careening out of control as his mother battles cancer. The Film Arcade is planning a fall 2015 release for the film, whose ensemble cast includes Scott "Kid Cudi" Mescudi, Ron Livingston and David Call.

James White earned the Best of Next audience award at Sundance. The feature is the latest from New York City-based Borderline Films, formed in 2003 by Mond, Antonio Campos and Sean Durkin.

Recent film credits include Afterschool, Martha Marcy May Marlene and Simon Killer. James White was produced by Campos, Durkin and Melody C. Roscher. The Film Arcade negotiated the U.S. rights deal with UTA Independent Film Group.
