Ensemble drama About Alex, from first-time helmer Jesse Zwick, has been picked up for North America by Screen Media Films. Aubrey Plaza, Max Greenfield, Nate Parker, Max Minghella, Jason Ritter, Maggie Grace, and Jane Levy star in the pic about a group of twentysomething pals who reunite one weekend after one of them suffers an emotional breakdown and attempts suicide. Akin to a Big Chill for the Facebook and Twitter generation, the recent Tribeca premiere will see a theatrical and VOD day and date release on August 8. Zwick wrote and directed the Footprint Features and Bedford Falls Company production, which was produced by Adam Saunders and exec produced by Ed Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz. Screen Media’s Suzanne Blech and Seth Needle negotiated the deal with WME on behalf of the filmmakers. Red Sea Media is repping international sales.
