Arizona marks another collaboration between Watson and McBride, who have worked together on the HBO comedy Vice Principals. The film was penned by Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s Luke Del Tredici and made its world premiere earlier this year at the Sundance Film Festival. RLJE Films, a brand of RLJ Entertainment, plans to release the film in summer 2018.
Set in the midst of the 2009 housing crisis, Arizona follows Cassie Fowler, a single mom and struggling realtor whose life goes off the rails when she witnesses a murder.
McBride stars alongside Rosemarie DeWitt, Luke Wilson, Elizabeth Gillies, and Kaitlin Olson. Arizona was produced by Imperative Entertainment’s Dan Friedkin (All the Money in the World), Ryan Friedkin (Hot Summer Nights), Bradley Thomas (All the Money in the World ) and Rough House Picture’s McBride and Brandon James.
Ward and Jess De Leo from RLJE negotiated the deal with CAA on behalf of the filmmakers.
