Maya Entertainment have announced that they have acquired international rights to the indie comedy Ass Backwards. The movie comes from the writers of 2009′s Bride Wars. Casey Wilson and June Diane Raphael (the writers of Bride Wars and this movie) play the two lead roles. The film, directed by Chris Nelson, also stars Alicia Silverstone, Jon Cryer and Vincent D’Onofio.
Two best friends Kate (June Diane Raphael) and Chloe (Casey Wilson) are living the so called “high life” in New York when they run into their former pageant nemesis, Laurel (Alicia Silverstone), who has gone on to become a multi-hyphenated superstar. Kate and Chloe, whose lives are not as fabulous as they seem to be, embark on a cross country road trip back to their hometown to attempt to win a pageant that eluded them as children. On the road, they face some hard truths about themselves and each other as they encounter spring breakers, strip clubs, a women’s militant group, and their favorite reality star.
The deal was negotiated by Elias Axume and Tonantzin Esparza, Director of Acquisitions, on behalf of Maya Entertainment. Ass Backwards was produced by Heather Rae and Molly Conners.
