AFM: The Works Boards Toni Collette

Comedy stars Toni Collette and Thomas Haden Church

Sales company The Works International has boarded romantic comedy “Lucky Them,” which stars Toni Collette and Thomas Haden Church. It will kick off sales at the AFM.

Megan Griffiths’ pic, which preemed at Toronto with IFC holding U.S. rights, is set within Seattle’s indie music scene.

Collette plays a journalist for a struggling music magazine who reluctantly agrees to take an assignment to investigate the disappearance of a revered local musician — who also happens to be her ex-boyfriend. For the ensuing road trip, she grudgingly accepts the companionship of music-hating, aspiring documentarian, played by Haden Church.

The deal was brokered by Clare Crean and Andy Ordonez of The Works International and John Sloss of Cinetic.
