Phase 4 films has acquired North American distribution rights to the thriller “Ask Me Anything,” starring Britt Robertson (“Under the Dome”).

Producers are Lauren Avinoam, Nicolas Emiliani, and Lauren Hogarth. Allison Burnett directed from his own script, adapted from his novel “Undiscovered Gyrl.”

Robertson portrays a young woman who takes a year off before college in order to seduce a 30-year-old film professor (played by Justin Long) while resisting her attraction to her married boss (portrayed by Christian Slater) while blogging anonymously about her adventures — before her narrative begins to crack and dark parts of her past emerge.

Martin Sheen, Robert Patrick and Max Carver also star.

Robertson stars as one of the leads in Disney’s “Tomorrowland” opposite George Clooney.

Phase 4’s Larry Greenberg negotiated the deal with Maren Olson of Traction on behalf of the filmmakers.
