Magnolia Pictures Announces Acquisition of Comedy 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. Magnolia plans a summer release through their Ultra VOD program, debuting the film on all VOD platforms a month prior to its theatrical release. The deal was negotiated by Magnolia's Director of Acquisitions Peter Van Steemberg with Preferred Content and Gersh on behalf of the filmmakers. BEST MAN DOWN was financed by Koda Entertainment.
