Katherine Waterston’s ‘Manhattan Romance’ Bought by Level 33

Level 33 Entertainment has acquired U.S. and Canadian right to romantic comedy “Manhattan Romance,” starring Katherine Waterston, Gaby Hoffman, Caitlin FitzGerald and Tom O’Brien, Variety has learned exclusively.

Level 33 plans an October theatrical release.

“Manhattan Romance” is also directed and produced by O’Brien. Dennis O’Neill and Mike Harrop produced as well.

O’Brien portrays a commercial editor and documentary filmmaker who’s working on a film about modern relationships, while navigating the relationships in his own life.

He purses an unattainable dancer (FitzGerald), but may be in love with his best friend (Waterston), who’s in an unfulfilling relationship with a political strategist (Hoffman).

Waterston starred in “Inherent Vice.” Hoffmann is in Amazon’s “Transparent” and HBO’s “Girls,” and FitzGerald stars in Showtime’s “Masters of Sex.”

Glen Reynolds of Circus Road Films negotiated the deal on behalf of the filmmakers.
