Freestyle Releasing has struck a deal with production company Herrick Entertainment for the US theatrical release of My One and Only.
Renee Zellweger, Kevin Bacon and Logan Leran star and supporting cast includes Eric McCormack, Chris Noth, Mark Rendall, Nick Stahl and Steven Weber.
Freestyle will release August 21 in New York and Los Angeles, followed by a September 4 expansion in 20 markets across the US.
Richard Loncraine directed from Charlie Peters’ script.
Aaron Ryder and Norton Herrick produced.
The film premiered at the 2009 Berlinale where it received a special jury mention.
Zellweger plays Anne Devereaux, who leaves her philandering bandleader husband in New York and takes her two teenage sons on a road trip in search of a perfect new partner.
My One And Only is loosely based on the early life of actor George Hamilton.
“We at Freestyle are thrilled to be releasing My One and Only, which is a great story and a terrific piece of filmmaking,” said Freestyle co-presidents Susan Jackson and Mark Borde in a joint statement. “We look forward to helping audiences discover this personal, human-scale movie and its great performances through a tiered rollout, and we think that August 21 will be the right date to begin that - an early kickoff to the fourth-quarter series of quality films aimed at adults.”
“I’m very proud of My One and Only and look forward to sharing it with American audiences,” added Norton Herrick. “I feel that the film is in good hands with the team at Freestyle, who really ‘get’ the movie and will help audiences discover this very special film in the months to come.”
Herrick presents a Raygun production in association with Merv Griffin Entertainment and George Hamilton Productions.
Vicki Dee Rock co-produced and the co-executive producers are Ronnie Ward, Robert Pritchard and Robert Kosberg. The executive producers are George Hamilton, Elayne Herrick and Michael Herrick.
Herrick Entertainment is also working with Broadway’s West Side Story, Exit The King and 9 to 5.
Freestyle’s past releases include The Illusionist, The Haunting of Molly Hartley and Bottle Shock.
