MultiVisionnaire pitches comedy at AFM

International distrib behind Melissa McCarthy's 'Ugly People'

MultiVisionnaire Pictures, a Los Angeles-based international distributor, is launching their comedy slate at this year’s AFM with a trio of pictures, including Melissa McCarthy-starrer “Pretty Ugly People,” which marks the real directorial debut of “The Help” helmer Tate Taylor.

Taylor’s film follows a reunion of college friends that goes off course in all the wrong ways. McCarthy plays a woman who pretends to be dying in order to trick her estranged friends into joining her on a four-day hike, which see several comedic confrontations take place.

MultiVisionnaire’s other pics include the Swedish comedy “Sweaty Beards” and “Little Blue Pill.” The former feature follows a cowardly viking who must get over his fear of fighting in order to avenge his father’s murder, while the latter is a raunchy tale of one man’s quest to cure his medically-enhanced erection before it gets him into more trouble.

“We bring these comedies to AFM this year since the outrageousness of each film crosses cultural boundaries, and they’ll appeal to the funny bone of buyers all over the world. If they don’t make you laugh, I’ll eat my DVD player!” said Sean Haley, managing partner at MultiVisionnaire.

Multivsionnaire Pictures, which works with rising filmmakers from around the world to develop and distribute smart genre films and commercially-viable indie programs, will be presenting the trio of titles as well as other pictures during the entire week of the AFM market.
