Marisa Tomei Comedy ‘Loitering with Intent’ Gets U.S. Distribution

The Orchard has acquired U.S. rights to Marisa Tomei’s “Loitering With Intent,” four months after the comedy premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival.

The film, written by and co-starring Michael Godere and Ivan Martin, focuses on the trials and tribulations of two down-and-out actors in New York who retreat to the country to write a screenplay that will salvage their downward-spiraling careers. The solitude they seek is interrupted by their host’s (Tomei) romantic involvements.

“The heart of this film is about friendship,” Tomei said. “Michael and Ivan created great characters and a great atmosphere to work in. We had a ball bringing this world to life.”

“Loitering” also stars Sam Rockwell, Natasha Lyonne, Isabelle McNally and Brian Geraghty also starred. New York-based filmmaker Adam Rapp directed.

Tomei is producing along with Lars Knudsen, Jay Van Hoy, Godere, Martin, Tory Lenosky, Alex Sagalchik, Gabriel Cowan, John Suits, and Keith Kjarval. It’s a Parts and Labor production in association with Mott Street Pictures, TideRock Media, Mm Buttered Panini Productions, New Artists Alliance, and No Mystery Media Partners.
