Comedy-drama that premiered at the Hamptons festival will hit theaters in April

Mark Urman’s New York-based distributor, Paladin, has acquired theatrical rights to “A Short History of Decay,” Michael Maren’s comedy-drama that bowed last fall as part of the Hamptons Intl. Film Festival.

The debut film written and directed by author-journo Maren, “Short History” stars Bryan Greenberg, Linda Lavin and Harris Yulin in a story about an aimless thirtysomething Brooklynite (Greenberg) who is summoned to Florida when his father (Yulin) is hospitalized, attended by his addled mother (Lavin). Kathleen Rose Perkins, Benjamin King and Emmanuelle Chriqui also appear in the pic.

Distribution was pacted by Urman with attorney Alfred Sapse, who also produced the movie. “Short History” joins a Paladin roster of films that has included “Midnight’s Children,” “The We and the I” and “Mansome,” with “Short History” on tap for an April opening in theaters.
