The Laundromat actor Larry Clarke got Oscar winner J.K. Simmons, Oscar nominee Lesley Ann Warren and Golden Globe winner Brian Dennehy together for his feature directorial comedy 3 Days With Dad which opened on Friday in ten cities, including New York and Los Angeles, and is also available on VOD.
Loosely based on Clarke’s life, he plays Eddie Mills, who heads home to deal with his dying father Bob (played by Dennehy). Bob is in complete denial over his fate, and making the situation worse is Eddie’s step mom (Lesley Ann Warren). Once at home, Eddie is confronted with a revelation that forces him to deal with the past he has always avoided. Pic boasts a cast that includes Tom Arnold, David Koechner, Mo Gaffney (Absolutely Fabulous, The Mick), Mike O’Malley (Sully, Glee), Julie Ann Emery (AMC’s Preacher, Better Call Saul) and Eric Edelstein (Jurassic World). Unified Pictures is distributing.
The pic, formerly known as Life Support, is produced by Kirk Roos and Brad Brizendine of Badlands Features. EPs are Rick Dukhovny, Matthew Roazen, Emanuele Moretti, Michael Cowan, DJ Dodd, Scott P. Barlow, and Michael J. Bergeron.
Badlands has been behind 2x Veep Emmy nominee Matt Walsh’s cinematic canon including Millennium’s High Road (in which Dylan O’Brien made his big screen debut) and FilmBuff’s A Better You. They’ve also produced such pics as the Bedeviled from Nichols Fellowship winners the Vang Brothers, and The Brass Teapot starring Juno Temple, Michael Angarano, Billy Magnussen, and Thomas Middleditch which was sold to Magnolia. 3 Days With Dad was repped for sales by Conduit Now, Badlands sister company, which also handled marketing strategy. Badlands is currently producing the fantasy comedy feature Saving Santa.
3 Days With Dad is currently playing at the Laemmle Music Hall and New York City’s Cinema Village.
