Gravitas Ventures has acquired Manhattan-set comedy The Longest Week, starring Jason Bateman as Conrad, the spoiled 40-year-old heir to a hotel fortune who is cut off from his allowance after his parents’ divorce. Crashing with old friend Dylan (Billy Crudup), he immediately falls for Dylan’s girlfriend Beatrice (Olivia Wilde) and falls headlong into an existential reflection as he tries to keep their relationship and his bank balance secret. Obvious Child‘s Jenny Slate also stars in the pic which marks writer-director Peter Glanz’s debut. Glanz adapted The Longest Week from his own Cannes and Sundance short A Relationship In Four Days. Gravitas has set a September 5 theatrical and VOD debut for the film, which has been likened to the Manhattan-set relationship comedies of Woody Allen, Whit Stillman, and Wes Anderson. YRF Entertainment financed The Longest Week and produced in association with Armian Pictures, Atlantic Pictures, and Far Hills. YRF’s Uday Chopra produced with Neda Armian. Jonathan Reiman, Chris Marsh, Stone Douglass, and Taylor Materne executive produced.
