Meistrich acquires ‘Wilby’

Deal reunites Film Movement with MacIvor

NEW YORK — Larry Meistrich’s Film Movement banner has struck a deal at AFM to acquire all domestic rights to writer-helmer Daniel MacIvor’s Canadian comedy “Wilby Wonderful.” Deal reunites Film Movement with MacIvor, who penned the distrib’s previous rollout, “Marion Bridge.”

Nova Scotia-set pic — starring MacIvor, Sandra Oh, James Allodi, Maury Chaykin and Paul Gross — follows a day in the life of a small town after a local paper threatens to publish names in a much-whispered-about scandal.

Sherrie Johnson and Camelia Frieberg produced “Wilby,” with Joe Frieberg exec producing.

Film Movement runs a subscription service that releases films simultaneously in theaters and to members via DVD.
