Nu Image Films has picked up worldwide distribution rights to “Relative Strangers.”
Comedy, directed by Greg Glienna, concerns an uptight psychiatrist (Ron Livingston) who sets out to meet his biological parents only to discover they are trailer park denizens.
Danny DeVito and Kathy Bates play the parents and Neve Campbell is the therapist’s fiancee.
Glienna wrote the screenplay with Peter Stass. DeVito, Brian Etting, Ram Bergman and Josh Etting serve as pic’s producers. Equity Pictures Medienfonds financed the project.
Glienna helmed 1992 pic “Meet the Parents,” which was remade in 2000. Glienna was a co-writer on that film, which starred Robert De Niro and Ben Stiller, with Jay Roach directing.
