EXCLUSIVE: Freestyle Digital Media has obtained the North American distribution rights to road trip comedy film I Hate Kids, which will get a day-and-date release on January 18. Directed by John Asher (A Boy Called Po), the pic stars La La Land actor Tom Everett Scott, Emmy-nominated Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star Tituss Burgess, Rachel Boston, Rhea Seehorn, and Julian Feder.
Todd Traina and Frank Dietz wrote the script. It follows Nick Pearson (Scott), the author of a best-selling comedic book, I Hate Kids, and former lothario, who is on the verge of marrying the woman of his dreams (Boston), who happens to share his disinterest for the child-rearing experience. At the rehearsal dinner, an awkward thirteen-year-old boy named Mason (Feder) shows up claiming to be Nick’s son. With the aid of a flamboyant “radio show psychic”, The Amazing Fabular (Burgess), the three strangers embark on a wild road trip to find Mason’s mother.
Rachel McHale and Traina produced the pic. Rachel Koehler of Freestyle handled the deal.
