Los Angeles, CA (May 16, 2012) – Berry Meyerowitz, President & CEO of Phase 4 Films, announced today that the company has acquired North American rights to writer-director Nate Meyer’s romance SEE GIRL RUN. The film stars Robin Tunney (THE MENTALIST) and Adam Scott (PARKS AND RECREATION). Jesse Sweet, Derrick Tseng and Meyer produced the project, with David Gordon Green (PINEAPPLE EXPRESS, THE SITTER) and Lisa Muskat (THE SITTER) executive producing. SEE GIRL RUN made its world premiere earlier this year at the 2012 SXSW Film Festival, and is having its market premiere this week in Cannes. Phase 4 will release the film day-and-date in theatres and on VOD later this year.
SEE GIRL RUN is what happens when a 30-something woman allows life’s “what ifs” to overwhelm her appreciation for what life actually is. Disregarding her current obligations, she digs into her romantic past in hopes of invigorating her present.
Noted Meyerowitz, “Nate Meyer has created an introspective, beautifully shot film that speaks with poignancy about human relationships. We are looking forward to working withthis top notch cast and production team and sharing the film with a North American audience.”
“Each new collaborator throughout the various phases of making SEE GIRL RUN has come onboard with a true appreciation for the heart and soul of the story we wanted to tell,” said Meyer. “Our good fortune continues with Phase 4, who, since our festival premiere, has demonstrated to be the ideal partner for distribution and I could not be more excited.”
The deal for SEE GIRL RUN was negotiated by Phase 4’s Larry Greenberg and Katharyn Howe with Ryan Kampe at Visit Films on behalf of the filmmakers.
