Sony Pictures Classics acquires Rebecca Miller's ‘Maggie’s Plan’

MUMBAI: Sony Pictures Classics has acquired all rights in North America, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, CIS, Hungary, Romania, China and various other Asian territories to Rebecca Miller's Maggie’s Plan.


Written and directed by Miller with a script based on a story by Karen Rinaldi, the film premiered at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival and will screen at the upcoming New York Film Festival.


Miller's comedy-drama follows a young woman whose determination to have a child catapults her into a nervy love triangle with a heart-throb academic and his eccentric critical-theorist wife.


The film stars Greta Gerwig, Ethan Hawke, Julianne Moore in the lead along with Bill Hader, Maya Rudolph, Travis Fimmel, Ida Rohatyn, Wallace Shawn and Mina Sundwall.


Maggie’s Plan is produced by Rachael Horovitz, Damon Cardasis and Miller, with executive producers Philip Stephenson and Temple Williams of Freedom Media, Lucy Barzun Donnelly and Alexandra Kerry of Locomotive, Michael J. Mailis and Susan Wrubel of Hyperion Media.


“I’m absolutely thrilled that Sony Classics will be distributing Maggie’s Plan. They are an iconic company and the perfect home for this film,” said Miller.


Horovitz and Cardasis added, “We're so happy to be teaming up with Sony Pictures Classics. Their long history of bringing quality thoughtful cinema to the screens is one we feel honored to be part of.”


“With Maggie’s Plan, Miller has done the impossible. She has created a totally relatable world that is both fresh and new. The screenplay is surprising and precise, a warm human comedy. The performances are spectacular. It is our good fortune to be working with Rebecca, producers Rachael and Damon and once again with Greta, Ethan, and Julie. We are confident the public will embrace Maggie’s Plan,” said Sony Pictures Classics.


The deal was negotiated between Sony Pictures Classics, CAA and Cinetic Media with International sales being handled by Protagonist Pictures.
