Magnolia Acquires Regina Hall Comedy ‘Support the Girls’

The pic is Andrew Bujalski’s follow up to ‘Results’ and is set to bow at SXSW on Friday.

Magnolia Pictures has nabbed the North American rights to Support the Girls, writer/director Andrew Bujalski’s follow-up to Results, ahead of a world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival on Friday.

Magnolia, which released Results, plans a theatrical release for Support the Girls later this year. Bujalski’s latest film stars Girls Trip actor Regina Hall as a restaurant manager who may not love her job, but loves her employees like family. That leads to a group of women banding together to forge a family in the most unlikely of places.

The film has an ensemble cast that includes Haley Lu Richardson, Shayna McHayle, Brooklyn Decker, Jana Kramer, James Le Gros, Dylan Gelula, AJ Michalka and Lea DeLaria. “We’ve been big fans of Andrew Bujalski for a long time and we’re excited to work with him again on Support the Girls,” said Magnolia president Eamonn Bowles in a statement.

“It’s a happy surprise to discover that any distributor we’ve worked with in the past is still in business,” added Bujalski in his own statement. The film is produced by Houston King and Sam Slater.

Executive producers are Jonathan Fryd, Scott Carmel, David Bernon, Susan Kirr and Paul Bernon. The deal was negotiated by Magnolia senior vp of acquisitions John Von Thaden, with ICM Partners on behalf of the filmmakers.

Operation Finale – Release Date announced

MGM has set a Sept. 21 release date for “Operation Finale,” the historical drama about the capture of Adolf Eichmann.

Chris Weitz is directing the drama from Matthew Orton’s screenplay about the capture of Eichmann, who was one of the major architects of the Holocaust. Eichmann organized the transport of Jews from countries all over Europe to concentration camps, where an estimated 6 million died.

When World War II was ending, Eichmann fled to his home country of Austria and then moved to Argentina. Eichmann was captured in Argentina in 1960 by the Mossad, Israel’s intelligence service. Following a trial in Israel, he was found guilty of war crimes and hanged in 1962 at the age of 56.

Oscar Isaac has been cast as Peter Malkin, the Mossad operative who led a group of Israeli spies searching for Eichmann. Ben Kingsley is portraying Eichmann. Melanie Laurent, Lior Raz, Nick Kroll, Michael Aronov, Haley Lu Richardson and Joe Alwyn also star.
