Sundance Winner ‘Me and Earl and the Dying Girl’ Set for July 1 Release

Fox Searchlight will release “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl” on July 1 in the U.S. in a limited release.

The drama, directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, won the grand jury prize and audience award for best U.S. dramatic feature at the Sundance Film Festival last month.

Thomas Mann stars as a high school senior who’s secretly making bizarre films with his only friend, Earl, when he’s forced by his mother to befriend a classmate with leukemia. RJ Cyler, Olivia Cooke, Nick Offerman, Connie Britton and Molly Shannon co-star.

Indian Paintbrush is the production company; producers are Jeremy Dawson and Dan Fogelman. Jesse Andrews adapted the script from his book.

In the deal struck during Sundance, Fox Searchlight agreed to pay a portion of the production costs upfront. The deal also involves profit-sharing with Indian Paintbrush, with a pricetag estimated at roughly $6 million.
