Berlin: Jenny Slate’s ‘Obvious Child’ Set for Sales

A24 planning U.S. release in 2014

The Exchange has acquired international sales rights to  Jenny Slate’s “Obvious Child,” a week after the comedy sold at Sundance.

The Exchange will begin selling the title to international buyers at the European Film Market in Berlin.

A24 picked up the North American rights to the film and plans a theatrical release in 2014.

The film is directed by first-time helmer Gillian Robespierre and premiered Jan. 17 as part of Sundance’s Next competition. Slate plays a Brooklyn comedian who gets dumped, fired and pregnant just in time for Valentine’s Day. Also starring are Gaby Hoffman, Polly Draper, Richard Kind and David Cross.

The project started as a 2009 short of the same name, and the filmmaker raised $37,000 on Kickstarter to help with production costs.

The film was produced by Elisabeth Holm and executive produced by Rooks Nest Entertainment, Sundial Pictures, Votiv Films, Slate, Robespierre, and David Kaplan.
