Based on the opening weekend perf of writer-helmer Andrew Wagner’s self-distribbed indie pic “The Talent Given Us,” exhibitor Landmark Theaters has reached an agreement to expand the film’s run nationally in 20 of its locations.

Wagner, who is also the pic’s producer, was distributing the film through his Daddy W Prods., along with the consultancy of David Schultz of the Vitagraph label.

Quirky pic, which stars Wagner’s real-life family on a cross country adventure searching for their director son, gained attention after its June 17 bow at the Angelika in Greenwich Village, where the pic grossed $12,754 off of one screen over the weekend.

Pic’s cume stood at $17,736 as of Friday.

At the time of the Landmark announcement last week, exhib had not yet set specific playdates for the pic, which preemed at the Sundance Film Fest earlier this year.
