Bleecker Street has acquired North American rights to The Tomorrow Man starring John Lithgow and Blythe Danner ahead of its world premiere in Sundance on January 30.
Noble Jones’ debut feature stars Lithgow as a man who spends his life preparing for a disaster that may never come, and Danner as a woman who spends her life shopping for things she may never use.
In a small town somewhere in America, the pair try to find love and not get lost in each other’s stuff. Derek Cecil, Katie Aselton, Sophie Thatcher and Eve Harlow round out the key cast.
Luke Rivett, Nicolaas Bertelsen, James Schamus and Tony Lipp produced The Tomorrow Man, which Bleecker Street plans to release theatrically on May 17.
Bleecker Street CEO Andrew Karpen said, “Noble Jones has created a uniquely charming love story between master actors John Lithgow and Blythe Danner. I’m thrilled to be working with my old colleague James Schamus and the team at Anonymous Content.”
Jones added, “I’m thrilled to have my film’s world premiere at Sundance. John and Blythe were amazing to work with and I’m looking forward to working with the incredible team at Bleecker Street to bring the film to nationwide audiences.”
Kent Sanderson and Camille Bertrand negotiated the deal for Bleecker Street with UTA Independent Film Group on behalf of the filmmakers.
