Aaron Katz, who co-wrote and co-directed the road trip comedy Land Ho! with Martha Stephens that premiered at Sundance this year, has inked with CAA. Sony Pictures Classics picked up the pic, which follows a pair of retirees who set off to Iceland in an attempt to reclaim their youth through Reykjavik nightclubs, trendy spas, and rugged campsites. A release this year is planned. Katz, formerly with UTA, made his feature debut with Dance Party USA, which premiered at the 2006 SXSW. His sophomore feature, Quiet City, earned a Spirit Award nomination in 2007, and IFC Films released his third film 2010’s Cold Weather.
