Phase 4 Films closed North American rights to writer-director Allison Burnett’s Ask Me Anything. An adaptation of Burnett’s novel Undiscovered Gyrl, the film tells the story of beautiful, wild, funny and lost Katie Kampenfelt (Britt Robertson), who takes a year off before college. Ambitious in her own way, Katie intends to do more than just smoke weed with her boyfriend Rory. She plans to seduce Dan (Justin Long), a 30-year-old film professor, while resisting her attraction to her married boss (Christian Slater). Katie chronicles her adventures in an anonymous blog, telling strangers her innermost desires, shames, and thrills. When her compulsions get the best of her, her fearless narrative begins to crack, and dark pieces of her past emerge. Kimberly Williams-Paisley and Martin Sheen also star.
Burnett’s writing credits include Underworld: Awakening, Fame, Resurrecting The Champ and Autumn In New York. Pic is produced by Lauren Avinoam, Nicolas Emiliani and Lauren Hogarth. Robertson next stars opposite George Clooney in Disney’s upcoming Tomorrowland and in the Nicholas Sparks novel adaptation Longest Ride. Phase 4’s Larry Greenberg brokered the deal with Maren Olsen at Traction.
