Picturehouse and New Line International have acquired worldwide rights to Ari Sandel's Vince Vaughn's Wild West Comedy Show: 30 Days & 30 Nights - Hollywood To The Heartland.

Vaughn produced the film, which originally premiered at Toronto last autumn and follows him on a comedy road tour with four up-and-coming comics. Peter Billingsley, John Isbell and Victoria Vaughn served as executive producers. Picturehouse plans an early 2008 release.

'This is a hilarious film and we want to make it an event across the country. Everything is funny, both on and off stage,' Picturehouse president Bob Berney said.

'From the moment the picture started I felt like I was on tour with these guys. It's a unique and different window into why Vince Vaughn is among the nation's most beloved comedy stars, and a chance for audiences to get to know four young rising talents.'

'From the beginning Bob Berney has shared our vision for the film,' Vaughn said. 'Bob and the Picturehouse team have an amazing track record. It is also great to be back as part of the New Line family after the tremendous success of Wedding Crashers.'

Picturehouse's senior vice president of acquisitions Sara Rose and New Line's executive vice president of business affairs and co-productions by Carolyn Blackwood negotiated the deal with UTA, Eric Gold and Deborah Klein on behalf of Vaughn.
