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.
Support The Girls (World Premiere)
Director/Screenwriter Andrew Bujalski
The general manager at a highway-side ‘breastaurant’ has her incurable optimism and faith–in her girls, her customers, and herself–tested over the course of a long, strange day.
Cast Regina Hall, Haley Lu Richardson, Shayna McHale, James LeGros, Dylan Gelula, AJ Michalka, Brooklyn Decker, Lea DeLaria, Jana Kramer, John Elvis.
SXSW 2018 takes place March 9-18, 2018 in Austin, Texas.
Regina Hall and Split co-star Haley Lu Richardson will star along with James Le Gros, AJ Michalka, Dylan Gelula, Shayna McHayle, Lea DeLaria, Jana Kramer and Brooklyn Decker in Support The Girls, a new indie comedy from writer-director Andrew Bujalski. Shooting is underway in Austin.
Sam Slater will produce for Burn Later Productions alongside Houston King of Houston King Productions, reteaming with Bujalski after they produced his 2015 Sundance pic Results starring Guy Pearce, Cobie Smulders and Kevin Corrigan. Jonathan Fryd, Scott Carmel and David Bernon are executive producers.
The plot centers on Lisa Conroy (Hall) who may not love managing the restaurant Double Whammies, but she loves her employees more than anything, not only Danyelle (McHale), and Maci (Richardson) her closest friends, but also her extended family. Unfortunately, the cheap, curmudgeonly owner Ben Cubby (Le Gros) doesn’t care nearly as much, and confronts Lisa when he learns that she’s using the restaurant to raise money for Shaina (Kramer), an employee in legal trouble related to an abusive boyfriend. To get even, the girls decide to sabotage the restaurant on the night of a major mixed martial arts fight.
