Phase 4 has earmarked a day-and-date autumn release in theatres and on VoD.

Adam Wilkins and Pavlina Hatoupis produced the story about a girl who escapes the domineering clutches of her mother and goes to live with her father, where she forms a bond with his younger boyfriend.

Sassy Pants premiered at the Santa Barbara Film Festival this year. Phase 4’s Larry Greenberg negotiated the deal with Katharyn Howe with Traction Media.

Separately, CJ Entertainment America has set an Aug 24 North American theatrical release for the action thriller R2B: Return To Base. The story is inspired by the 1963 South Korean film Red Scarf by Shin Sang-ok.
