LOS ANGELES:

Arab Times - - INTERNATIONAL -

Road­side At­trac­tions and Topic Stu­dios have part­nered to buy North Amer­i­can rights to the hol­i­day sea­son com­edy “The Oath,” star­ring Tif­fany Had­dish and Ike Bar­in­holtz, with a plan for a fall re­lease.

“The Oath,” Bar­in­holtz’s di­rec­to­rial debut, cen­ters around a cou­ple whose Thanks­giv­ing takes a turn for the worse when two fed­eral agents wind up be­ing held cap­tive in their living room. Bar­in­holtz also wrote the script.

The film also stars John Cho, Car­rie Brown­stein, Billy Mag­nussen, Mered­ith Hag­ner, Bar­in­holtz’s brother Jon Bar­in­holtz, Nora Dunn and Chris El­lis.

“The Oath” is pro­duced by Sean McKit­trick & Ray Mans­field of QC En­ter­tain­ment, Bar­in­holtz and David Stassen of 23/34 Pic­tures and An­drew Robin­son of Aper­ture Me­dia Pro­duc­tions. Had­dish served as an ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer along with QC’s Ed­ward H. Hamm Jr. and Kris­ten Murtha.

“Ike’s hi­lar­i­ous di­rec­to­rial fea­ture debut rein­vents the hol­i­day com­edy for our times,” said Road­side At­trac­tions chiefs Howard Co­hen and Eric d’Ar­beloff. “He and Tif­fany make one of the great­est on-screen cou­ples we’ve seen, and their fam­ily Thanks­giv­ing trou­bles will have au­di­ences laugh­ing at our un­cer­tain po­lit­i­cal mad­ness with­out check­ing their in­tel­li­gence at the gate.” (RTRS)
