'The Intervention'

The veteran actress, best known for roles in 'Argo' and HBO's 'Carnivale,' moved behind the camera for 'The Intervention,' which marks her feature directing debut.

Paramount Home Media is in negotiations to acquire worldwide rights to Clea DuVall's drama The Intervention.

The film will have a theatrical release via a third party to be determined with Paramount Home Media's day-and-date VOD release. The deal was pegged at just north of $2 million.

Dubbed an homage to The Big Chill, The Intervention kicks off after a weekend getaway for four couples takes a sharp turn when one of the couples discovers the entire trip was orchestrated to host an intervention on their marriage.

DuVall directed, wrote and co-starred in the film. Melanie Lynskey, Cobie Smulders, Alia Shawkat, Natasha Lyonne and Ben Schwartz also star in the ensemble cast.

Burn Later Productions fully financed the pic, which also co-stars Jason Ritter and Vincent Piazza.

Paul Bernon, Sam Slater and Sev Ohanian produced The Intervention, and Mel Eslyn, David Bernon and DuVall executive produced.
