Magnolia Pictures has acquired U.S. rights to Susanna Fogel’s Life Partners, which world premiered last month at the Tribeca Film Festival. Leighton Meester (Gossip Girl), Gillian Jacobs (Community), Adam Brody (Some Girl(s), The O.C.) and Gabourey Sidibe (Precious, American Horror Story: Coven) star in the comedy directed by Fogel and co-written by Fogel and Joni Lefkowitz. It tells the story of co-dependent best friends, straight Paige (Jacobs) and lesbian Sasha (Meester), who have spent the past 10 years acting more like wives than friends. Things take a turn when Paige meets Tim (Brody). As their relationship grows, the bond between Paige and Sasha inevitably shifts and eventually they must confront the question: Can their friendship survive growing up? Pic is produced by Red Crown Productions and Haven Entertainment.
