Magnet Releasing has acquired North American rights to Todd Rohal’s comedy “Nature Calls,” starring Patton Oswalt, Johnny Knoxville, Rob Riggle, the late Patrice O’Neal (in his final film role), Maura Tierney and Darrell Hammond.

The film was written and directed by Rohal (“The Catechism Cataclysm”) and produced by Lisa Muskat. David Gordon Green exec produced with David Bausch, Michael Clark and John Hodges.

The deal was negotiated by Magnet/Magnolia’s Dori Begley with Cinetic Media and CAA.
