Rob Minkoff pic stars Patrick Dempsey, Ashley Judd

IFC Films has snagged U.S. rights to Sundance alum “Flypaper” for theatrical and VOD release.

Helmed by Rob Minkoff (“The Lion King”) and penned by “The Hangover” duo Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, the comedy stars Patrick Dempsey and Ashley Judd as a bank patron and a teller who get caught in a standoff between two separate groups of crooks trying to rob the same bank at the same time.

Tim Blake Nelson, Jeffrey Tambor and Pruitt Taylor Vance are among the cast. Mark Damon, Dempsey and Peter Safran produce the film from Foresight Unlimited.

Distribution deal was negotiated by IFC’s Arianna Bocco with UTA’s Independent Film Group and Traction Media.

IFC Films, the Rainbow Media-owned sister division to Sundance Selects and IFC Midnight, has not yet set a release date.
