Sony Worldwide Takes THE LOVERS
Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions (“SPWA”) has acquired all international rights to The Lovers, the upcoming romantic comedy starring Debra Winger and Tracy Letts.
The Lovers is a refreshingly funny look at love, fidelity, and family, starring Debra Winger and Tracy Letts as a long-married and completely dispassionate husband and wife. Both are in the midst of serious affairs and are increasingly committed to their new partners. But on the brink of officially calling it quits, a spark between them suddenly and unexpectedly reignites, leading them into an impulsive romance that forces them to navigate the hilarious complications of “cheating” on their respective lovers. A mixture of humor and powerful emotion, the story is a uniquely honest take on modern marriage.
The film is directed by Azazel Jacobs and produced by Jacobs, Ben LeClair, and Chris Stinson. A24 will release The Lovers domestically on May 5, 2017, and brokered the deal with SPWA, which is for all territories outside of North America.
