Cinedigm Entertainment Group and Tribeca Film have jointly acquired U.S. distribution rights to Craig Zisk’s feature debut “The English Teacher,” starring Julianne Moore.

The film will be released in the spring on ultra VOD and digital, followed by theatrical release, DVD and broadcast.

“The English Teacher” is produced by Matthew E. Chausse, Naomi Despres, Ben LeClair and Robert Salerno.

The story, co-written by Dan and Stacy Chariton, centers on a well-liked English teacher with a repressed personal life. Her routine is upended when a former star pupil returns to her small town after failing as a playwright.

Nathan Lane, Greg Kinnear, Lily Collins and Michael Angarano also star.

Scordino negotiated the deal on behalf of Cinedigm with Tribeca Film’s Nick Savva.
