Oscilloscope buys ‘Hello, I Must Be Going’

Todd Louiso drama premiered at Sundance

Oscilloscope has acquired North American rights to Todd Louiso’s ”Hello, I Must Be Going,” which premiered opening night at the Sundance Film Festival.

The drama, starring Melanie Lynskey, centers on a thirty-something divorcee who moves back in with her parents, only to find romance in a local teenager.

”We loved it from the moment we saw it at Sundance, and we are thrilled to be working with this great filmmaking team to bring it out into the world,” Oscilloscope said in a statement.

Written by Sarah Koskoff, ”Hello, I Must Be Going” co-stars Blythe Danner and newcomer Christopher Abbott and was produced by Mary Jane Skalski and Hans Ritter. Pic screened in Sundance’s U.S. Dramatic Competition section and will likely bow in U.S. theaters this August.

”In making the film, we became a close knit group,” said Skalski in a statement. ”Todd, Sarah, Hans and I are thrilled to bring Oscilloscope into the family.”

Oscilloscope’s upcoming 2012 slate includes Andrea Arnold’s ”Wuthering Heights,” Matt Ross’s ”28 Hotel Rooms” and Ryan O’Nan’s ”Brooklyn Brothers Beat the Beast.”

Deal was negotiated by WME Global.
