Here! fits ‘Straight-Jacket’

Day wrote, helmed film set in 1950s Hollywood

Here! Films has acquired worldwide distribution rights to the comedy “Straight-Jacket” from SRO Films and plans a fall release.

Pic, written and directed by Richard Day, is set in 1950s Hollywood and is centered on a movie star who marries an unwitting studio secretary to conceal his homosexuality, without letting her in on the ruse. “Straight-Jacket” was originally produced as an Off Broadway play in 2000.

Produced by Michael Warwick, the film stars Matt Letscher, Carrie Preston, Veronica Cartwright, Adam Greer, Jack Plotnick and Michael Emerson. Day made his feature debut last year with “Girls Will Be Girls.”

The acquisition is the fourth in the past three months by Here! Films following purchases of “Beautiful Boxer,” “Callas Forever” and “Merci Docteur Rey.”
