Phase 4, Samuel Goldwyn Partner to Play ‘Short Game’

Jessica Biel, Justin Timberlake exec produce the SXSW audience award winner

Distributors Phase 4 Films and Samuel Goldwyn Films have teamed up to acquire North American rights to Josh Greenbaum’s doc “The Short Game,” skedding the film for a theatrical release next month.

The feature, about eight kiddie golfers training for and competing in the annual Championships of Junior Golf, won an audience award at South By Southwest earlier this year. Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake have signed on as exec producers, joining a list that already includes Timm Oberwelland, John Battsek and David Frankel.

Greenbaum, Rafael Marmor and Christopher Leggett produce the pic from Delirio Films. “Short Game” is the first feature by helmer Greenbaum after amassing a string of TV and short film credits.

The distribution deal was pacted with Phase 4 and Samuel Goldwyn by Josh Braun of Submarine.

Phase 4’s recent titles include Eva Longoria and Billy Bob Thornton starrer “The Baytown Outlaws” and Keanu Reeves topper “Generation Um,” as well as TV properties including “The Vikings” and “The Borgias.” “Short Game” joins a Samuel Goldwyn slate that has included “The Whistleblower,” “Robot and Frank” and “Somm.”

“Short Game” will hit theaters Sept. 20.
