Magnolia Acquires BEST MAN DOWN

The Wagner/Cuban Company’s Magnolia Pictures announced today that they’ve acquired North American rights to BEST MAN DOWN, a warmly funny new comedy from writer/director Ted Koland, starring Justin Long, Jess Weixler, Tyler Labine, Addison Timlin and Frances O’Connor. The film was produced by David Abbitt, Jen Roskind and Sharyn Steele.

When their obnoxious and over-served best man, Lumpy (Labine) unexpectedly dies at their destination wedding in Phoenix, bride and groom Kristin (Weixler) and Scott (Long) are forced to cancel their honeymoon and fly home to the snowy Midwest to arrange for his funeral. But when they arrive they realize that there was a lot more to their friend than met the eye.

“We are pleased to be handling BEST MAN DOWN, a charming film that features excellent performances from a completely winning cast,” said Magnolia President Eamonn Bowles.

“It’s incredibly exciting to partner with Magnolia on my first film, a company that’s made a brand for itself by bringing unique, compelling stories to the screen,” said writer/director Ted Koland

Magnolia plans a summer release through their Ultra VOD program, debuting the film on all VOD platforms a month prior to its theatrical release.
