The English Teacher stars Julianne Moore, Nathan Lane, Greg Kinnear, Lily Collins and Michael Angarano and will be released this spring as part of a double-team rights deal between Cinedigm Entertainment Group and Tribeca Film. As part of the pact, an ultra-VOD and digital window will be followed by a theatrical run, DVD and TV in the U.S. Moore stars in the comedy as a beloved English teacher whose repressed personal life exists in stark contrast to the passion she brings to the classroom. Her routine is upended when a former star pupil returns to her small town after failing miserably as a playwright. Craig Zisk (Nurse Jackie, Weeds) made his directorial debut on the pic, which was co-written by Dan and Stacy Chariton. Matthew E. Chausse, Naomi Despres, Ben LeClair and Robert Salerno produced. Vincent Scordino, VP Acquisitions, Theatrical, for Cinedigm negotiated the deal with Tribeca Film Director of Acquisitions Nick Savva.
