Roadside Attractions Picks Up Dane Cook Drama

Written by: FFT Webmaster | August 17th, 2011

Specialty distributor Roadside Attractions has acquired all U.S. rights to ANSWERS TO NOTHING, an ensemble drama directed by Matthew Leutwyler and starring comedian Dane Cook in a rare dramatic role. The film, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, is a gritty drama of interweaving stories set in Los Angeles against the backdrop of a child kidnapping case. The film is based on an original story by Matthew Leutwyler, who also wrote the screenplay with Gillian Vigman.  The film was produced by Ambush Entertainment, with its financing arm, Cold Iron Pictures, providing coin for the film. Along with Cook, the film also features Elizabeth Mitchell, Julie Benz, Academy-Award nominee Barbara Hershey, Zach Gilford, Erik Palladino, Mark Kelly and Miranda Bailey. Roadside plans to open the film later this year.
