Image Entertainment has picked up North American rights (excluding theatrical) from Capitol Films to Nigel Cole's comedy $5 A Day, which gets its world premiere tonight [September 6] in Toronto's Contemporary World Cinema strand.

Alessandro Nivola and Christopher Walken star in the tale of a conservative man who grudgingly joins his free-spirited hustler father on a road trip after being released from jail for one of his father's crimes. Amanda Peet, Sharon Stone and Peter Coyote star.

'This film is certain to be an audience-pleaser with it all-star cast and funny storyline,' Image Entertainment's chief acquisitions officer Bill Bromiley said. 'Amanda Peet, Sharon Stone and Christopher Walken are all hilarious in this tale of a crazy father and his not-so-crazy son.'
