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