IFC Takes North America On Adult World

adultworldnews5913feat

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.

Fox rejects ‘Delirium’ pilot

deliriumrejectedfeat

This year’s pilot season has claimed its first online fandom victims.

Fox has decided to not move forward with Delirium, an ambitious sci-fi novel adaptation starring Emma Roberts as a 17-year-old in a dystopian future where love is outlawed. Billy Campbell also starred. The pilot was based on the bestselling young adult novels by Lauren Oliver. Instead Fox ordered J.J. Abrams’ robot cops drama, a Sleepy Hollow series, and two others.

A second project with a notable following that was rejected Wednesday: NBC’s adaption of the comic book series The Sixth Gun, which is based on a best-selling supernatural graphic novel that follows the story of six mythical guns, each with its own other-worldly powers. Michiel Huisman and Laura Ramsey starred in that one.

NBC also passed on a present-date update of the feuding families tale Hatfields & McCoys. Virginia Madsen and Rebecca De Mornay starred. Which NBC pilots are getting picked up has yet to be announced.

We recently raised the idea that broadcasters should consider the Amazon model of putting pilots online and letting viewers weigh in before making these decisions. You have to wonder: Would Fox and NBC’s choices have been any different? (Delirium had fans pushing a Twitter campaign urging Fox to pick up the show). And, if network decisions were different, would the choices have performed better or worse, ultimately? Interesting to consider, though no way to really know.

For the current list of pilots that are in contention, have been picked up, and are considered dead, see here.
