Gravitas, Variance partner for ‘Love’

Duo acquire N. American rights to Webber drama

Gravitas Ventures and Variance Films have partnered to acquire all North American rights to Mark Webber’s father-son drama “The End of Love.”

“Love,” which debuted at Sundance in January, is a Here Now production in association with Poor Rich Kids. Producers are Webber, Liz Destro and Matt Sprague.

The film stars Webber, Shannyn Sossamon and Webber’s real-life son Isaac Love. Michael Cera, Jason Ritter, Amanda Seyfried, Aubrey Plaza and Jocelin Donahue also appear.

Gravitas will release “Love” on VOD on Jan. 21, with a theatrical release from Variance Films beginning March 1 in select markets.

Webber, who also penned the script, portrays a struggling actor forced to grapple with his inability to grow up when the mother of his 2-year-old son Isaac suddenly passes away.

Variety’s Rob Nelson gave the film a mixed review at Sundance: “Oddly overstuffed with cameos by bigscreen actors playing tongue-in-cheek versions of themselves, Webber’s Los Angeles-set, microbudget dramedy delivers some rare and beautiful moments of daddy day-care, but its tone shifts more wildly than a preschooler’s disposition and its narrative is stillborn.”

The deal was negotiated by Nolan Gallagher from Gravitas Ventures and Dylan Marchetti of Variance Films with Kevin Iwashina of Preferred Content on behalf of the filmmakers.
