Freestyle nabs ‘Inappropriate Comedy’

Shingle gets North American rights to laffer

Freestyle Releasing has acquired North American rights for sketch-comedy movie “Inappropriate Comedy.”

Freestyle plans a North American theatrical release followed by a DVD/VOD release.

Movie is directed by Vince Offer and written by Offer, Ari Shaffir and Ken Pringle. The film is produced by Robert B. Shapiro (“The Last Time”) and Pringle for Square One Entertainment.

Deal was announced at AFM. Highland Film Group will handle international distribution.

Stars include Adrien Brody as “Flirty Harry,” a tough, no-nonsense cop with a flair for fashion; Rob Schneider in a dual role as both a sleazy psychologist and a curmudgeonly porn critic alongside his counterpart Michelle Rodriguez; Lindsay Lohan living out her fantasy of taking revenge on the paparazzi who haunt her; and Ari Shaffir as “the Amazing Racist.”

The deal was negotiated by Freestyle’s Susan Jackson, Hal Sadoff and attorneys Andrew Hurwitz and Alan Sacks of Frankfurt Kurnit Klein & Selz.

Susan Jackson said: “‘Inappropriate Comedy’ totally delivers to the ‘Jackass’ and ‘Borat’ audience. We are also delighted to be working with director Vince Offer, whose experience and following from his remarkable direct marketing successes will prove invaluable to the promotion of the film.”

“Inappropriate Comedy” “couldn’t have found a better home than with the team at Freestyle Releasing, as they really understand risque comedies like this one,” said Vince Offer.
