Magnolia Pictures has acquired US rights to indie romantic comedy “Barry Munday” from Far Hills Pictures and Corner Store Entertainment.

“Munday,” the directorial debut of Chris D’Arienzo, stars Patrick Wilson, Judy Greer, Cybill Shepherd, Malcolm McDowell, Chloe Sevigny, Colin Hanks, Billy Dee Williams, Shea Whigham, and Jean Smart. Stone Douglass and Matthew Weaver produced the film.

Magnolia will release “Barry Munday” as part of its Ultra VOD program on Aug. 27, followed by a platformed theatrical release on Oct. 1. Pic premiered at this year’s SXSW Film Festival.

Far Hills Pictures’ upcoming films include the documentary “King of the B’s: The Independent Life of Roger Corman.” Magnolia’s upcoming releases include “Freakonomics: The Movie,” Luca Guadagnino’s “I Am Love,” Bob Pulcini and Shari Berman’s “The Extra Man” and Tanya Hamilton’s “Night Catches Us.”

Deal was negotiated by WME Global and Magnolia’s Tom Quinn and Dori Begley.
