Magnolia Pictures has nabbed North American rights to Ted Koland's comedy "Best Man Down" (aka "Lumpy"), starring Justin Long ("Movie 43," "Live Free of Die Hard") and Jess Weixler ("Teeth"). Tyler Labine ("Tucker and Davil vs Evil"), Addison Timlin ("Afterschool") and Frances O'Connor ("The Hunter") co-star. Check out the trailer below. Magnolia plans a summer VOD release, debuting the film on all digital platforms a month prior to its theatrical release. When their obnoxious and over-served best man, Lumpy (Labine) unexpectedly dies at their destination wedding in Phoenix, bride and groom Kristin (Weixler) and Scott (Long) are forced to cancel their honeymoon and fly home to the snowy Midwest to arrange for his funeral. But when they arrive they realize that there was a lot more to their friend than met the eye. »
