Maya Entertainment Group has acquired the international rights to a pair of comedies — ”It’s A Disaster” and ”Ass Backwards.”

Company is selling both projects at the American Film Market.

”It’s a Disaster,” from writer/director Todd Berger, stars Julia Stiles, David Cross and America Ferrera. Story centers on four couples who meet for Sunday brunch find themselves stranded in a house together as the world may be about to end — with the couples not letting the potential end of the world get in the way of the relationship issues they all need to work out.

”It’s A Disaster” is the second film for Vacationeer Productions, headed by Kevin M. Brennan and Jeff Grace.

”Ass Backwards” is directed by Chris Nelson and stars Alicia Silverstone, Jon Cryer, Vincent D’Onofrio, Casey Wilson and June Diane Raphael. Story centers on two best friends living the so called ”high life” in New York when they run into their former pageant nemesis and embark on a cross country road trip back to their hometown to attempt to win a pageant that eluded them as children.

”Ass Backwards” was produced by Heather Rae and Molly Conners.

ICM brokered the deal with Maya Entertainment and represents worldwide rights. ICM represents Vacationeer Productions, Julia Stiles and America Ferrera. Stiles is managed by Untitled Entertainment. Ferrera is managed by Authentic Talent and Literary Management.
