Phase 4 Films has acquired the North American rights to Sassy Pants. The company announced today that it will release the coming-of-age comedy in theatres and on VOD later this fall. Sassy Pants tells the tale of a teen girl who leaves her domineering mother behind to live with her father and his much younger boyfriend. Directed and written by Coley Sohn, the film stars Ashley Rickards, Haley Joel Osment and Anna Gunn who is known for her Emmy-nominated role as Skyler White on AMC’s Breaking Bad. Sassy Pants made its world premiere earlier this year at the 2012 Santa Barbara International Film Festival. Adam Wilkins and Pavlina Hatoupis produced the movie. Phase 4’s Larry Greenberg and Katharyn Howe negotiated the Sassy Pants deal with Traction Media on behalf of the filmmakers.
