Magnet Releasing has picked up North American rights to Nature Calls starring Patton Oswalt, Johnny Knoxville, Rob Riggle, Patrice O’Neal, Maura Tierney and Darrell Hammond.
Todd Rohal directed and Lisa Muskat produced the comedy. David Gordon Green served as executive producer alongside David Bausch, Michael Clark and John Hodges.
Oswalt stars as a Scoutmaster whose brother lures his young charges to a TV-themed slumber party. Chaos ensues.
“Nature Calls holds its own with the best low-brow comedy classics,” Magnolia president Eamonn Bowles said. “Well directed with a truly funny cast, this is going to be a late night favorite for years to come.”
Magnet will release the film on Oct 4 through its Ultra VOD channels, with a theatrical release to follow on Nov 9.
Magnet/Magnolia svp of acquisitions Dori Begley negotiated the deal with Cinetic Media and CAA.
