A young writer (Justin Long) woos a cute and quirky barista (Evan Rachel Wood) by creating an embellished online profile. When she falls for his alter ego, he must keep up the act or lose his dream girl. Directed by Tff alumna Kat Coiro and featuring a cast of hilarious cameo performers, including Peter Dinklage, Brendan Fraser, Sam Rockwell, Vince Vaughn and Sienna Miller, A Case of You is a winning romantic comedy for the social media age.
Deal was announced during the first day of Cannes, where Red Granite is selling international rights. “A Case of You,” which also stars Sam Rockwell, Peter Dinklage, Busy Philipps and Sienna Miller, premiered last month at Tribeca.
The film was produced by Long and O’Donnell with Holly Wiersma and Logan Levy. Exec producers are Brice Sanderford and Cassian Elwes.
