Tribeca Film, Well Go Co-Acquire Scott Foley's Directorial Debut 'Let's Kill Ward's Wife'
Foley, Patrick Wilson and James Carpinello star in and produced the dark comedy
Tribeca Film and Well Go USA Entertainment have jointly acquired North American rights to Scott Foley's directorial debut Let's Kill Ward’s Wife.
Foley, who also wrote the screenplay, stars alongside Amy Acker (Much Ado About Nothing), James Carpinello (Gangster Squad), Dagmara Dominczyk (The Immigrant), Marika Dominczyk (Brothers & Sisters), Donald Faison (Scrubs), Greg Grunberg (Heroes), Nicollette Sheridan (Desperate Housewives) and Patrick Wilson (The Conjuring).
Let's Kill Ward's Wife is a dark comedy about helping a friend out of a bad relationship by any means necessary. Everyone hates Ward's wife (Dagmara Dominczyk) and wants her dead, Ward (Faison) most of all. But when his friends' murderous fantasies turn into an (accidental) reality, they have to deal with a whole new set of problems — like how to dispose of the body and still make their 3 p.m. tee time.
The film will released on VOD platforms in December 2014, followed by a theatrical run in January 2015.
Foley also produced with Wilson and Carpinello’s Lost Rhino Films, as well as Joe Hardesty.
"Scott Foley leads a stellar ensemble in his delightful directorial debut," Tribeca Film's Geoff Gilmore said. "A playful, funny, even slightly perverse look at marriage and friends, this is a wonderfully funny satire that will engage and provoke anyone who has ever contemplated ways to end a bad relationship."
Added Foley: "Patrick, James and I are thrilled that our passion project has garnered so much interest. Let's Kill Ward's Wife is a movie that we're all very close to, and we know that Tribeca Film and Well Go USA is the perfect home for our film."
The deal was negotiated by Alison Diviney for Tribeca Film. ICM Partners' Alex Saks and APA's Will Lowery repped the filmmakers.
