Jason Schwartzman-Elisabeth Moss Comedy ‘Listen Up Philip’ Gets North American Distribution

Tribeca Film has acquired North American rights to Alex Ross Perry’s dark comedy “Listen Up Philip,”  starring Jason Schwartzman and Elisabeth Moss.

Tribeca will release “Philip” theatrically beginning Oct. 17 with video-on-demand platforms following on Oct. 21.

The film, which premiered at Sundance, also stars Jonathan Pryce, Krysten Ritter, Josephine de La Baume, Dree Hemingway and Jess Weixler.

“Listen Up Philip” is produced by Katie Stern and Joshua Blum at Washington Square Films and Toby Halbrooks, James M. Johnston & David Lowery of Sailor Bear.

Perry directed from his own script, which centers on a novelist (played by Schwartzman) who awaits the publication of his second novel as he feels pushed out of his adopted home city by the constant crowds and noise and a deteriorating relationship with his photographer girlfriend, portrayed by Moss.

Variety’s Scott Foundas gave “Philip” a strong review, calling it “remarkably achieved.”

The deal was negotiated for Tribeca Film by Nick Savva, with John Sloss of Cinetic Media on behalf of the filmmakers.
