Ashby stars Mickey Rourke and Nat Wolff with Emma having a supporting role. Awkward Ed Wallis (Nat Wolff) needs help fitting in and turns to his neighbor Ashby Holt (Mickey Rourke) for help. Ashby’s unforgiving brand of tough love soon tests their friendship, and it hardly helps when Ed learns that Ashby is a former CIA assassin. The film will make its debut at the Tribeca film festival in New York in April so hopefully soon will see a theatrical release (most likely limited).

IFC Films has acquired North American rights to Scott Coffey’s comedy “Adult World,” starring Emma Roberts as an employee at a sex shop.
IFC is planning a day and date release in theaters and on VOD. “Adult World” premiered April 20 at Tribeca.
Evan Peters, John Cusack, Armando Riesco, Cloris Leachman and Shannon Woodward also star. Producers are Justin Nappi and Kevin Turen of Treehouse Pictures with Joy Gorman, Alex Goldstone and Manu Gargi.
Story, penned by Andy Cochran, centers on a young woman living with her parents who’s anxious to get her poetry career off the ground. She begrudgingly accepts a job at Adult World, the local sex shop.
Ronnie Schieb wrote in her review for Variety: “Coffey’s loose, casual style, tilting toward the performance-centric and improvisational — as with his 2005 debut, ‘Ellie Parker,’ starring genius-caliber actress Naomi Watts — cannot fully accommodate the presence of former kidvid starlet Emma Roberts (‘Nancy Drew’), heading an otherwise comfortable, quite excellent cast. Nevertheless, the film’s coyly titillating subject matter and John Cusack’s delicious star turn as a curmudgeonly, once-lionized poet should support a limited run.”
The deal was negotiated by Arianna Bocco for Sundance Selects/IFC Films with CAA on behalf of the filmmakers.
