Open Road Films has acquired worldwide rights to “The Fluffy Movie,” a comedy concert film starring Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias, and set a July 11 release date.

“Fluffy” will be released a year after Lionsgate scored impressively with its standup comedy film “Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain,” with $32 million in domestic box office.

Gulfstream Pictures’ partners Mike Karz and Bill Bindley are financing and producing. Other producers are Arsonhouse Entertainment’s Joe Meloche and Ron DeBlasio, Gabriel Iglesias and his company Fluffy Inc., and Levity Entertainment Group. John Bravakis is exec producing.

Open Road and Gulfstream worked with Iglesias on animated film “The Nut Job,” with Iglesias voicing Jimmy, a groundhog.

The movie will be filmed at two upcoming comedy shows on Feb. 28 and March 1 in San Jose, Calif.

Iglesias began performing standup comedy in 1997. Comedy Central premiered “Gabriel Iglesias: Aloha Fluffy” in April in a two-night comedy special.

Iglesias’ screen credits include “Magic Mike,” “Planes” and Open Road’s upcoming “A Haunted House 2.”
