IFC Films has acquired U.S. distribution rights to “I Hate Valentine’s Day,” starring Nia Vardalos and John Corbett.
Pic marks the first re-teaming of Vardalos and Corbett since IFC’s hit “My Big Fat Greek Wedding” in 2002, which grossed $369 million worldwide. “Valentine’s Day” will be available on-demand beginning July 1, with theatrical dates in New York, Los Angeles and selected cities.
Project is Vardalos’ directing debut; she also wrote the romantic comedy, which co-stars Judah Friedlander, Rachel Dratch and Zoe Kazan. Pic is produced by Blue Star Entertainment’s William Sherak and Jason Shuman, who just wrapped on Luke Wilson starrer “Middle Men.”
