The distributor has acquired all Canadian rights from Fortitude International to the comedy Ideal Home starring Paul Rudd and Steve Coogan.

Steve Coogan

Andrew Fleming, who reunites with his Hamlet 2 star Coogan, directs what is the first project co-financed by Remstar Films’ sister company Remstar Studios alongside the National Bank Of Canada.

Principal photography began on May 11 in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The story centres on a bickering gay couple who are left with no choice but to take in a young man who claims one of them is his grandfather.

Gabriella Tana, Maria Theresa Arida, Aaron Ryder, and Remstar Studio’s Clark Peterson and Maxime Remillard produce, while Lisa Wolofsky of the National Bank Of Canada serves as executive producer.

Fortitude International is in talks with international buyers in Cannes. UTA Independent Film Group and WME Global represents US rights.
