Rebecca Hall-Jason Sudeikis Romance ‘Tumbledown’ Set for Valentine’s Day

Starz has acquired U.S. distribution rights to the comedic love story “Tumbledown,” starring Rebecca Hall and Jason Sudeikis, and set a Valentine’s weekend release.

The film premiered last month at the Tribeca Film Festival. Dianna Agron, Blythe Danner, Griffin Dunne, Joe Manganiello and Richard Masur also star.

Tumbledown” is Sean Mewshaw’s feature directorial debut. He directed from a script by Desiree Van Til, who is also an executive producer.

Hall portrays a widow unable to move on after the death of her husband, an acclaimed musician and the subject of a biography she’s struggling to write, when she meets a brash New York academic who has a different take on her husband’s life.

Producers are Kristin Hahn of Hahnscape Entertainment, Bron Studios’ Aaron L. Gilbert and Margot Hand. Jason Cloth is an executive producer.

Starz said it is planning a “significant” nationwide theatrical release around Valentine’s Day, to be followed by an on-demand release and then an exclusive pay-TV premiere on Starz.

Three other titles have been set for Feb. 12 — Fox’s “Deadpool,” Paramount’s “Zoolander 2” and New Line’s ensemble comedy “How to Be Single.”

Mewshaw and Van Til are managed by Anonymous Content. CAA represented the filmmakers in the deal.

Starz Digital’s upcoming titles include Jay Martin’s “7 Minutes,” starring Luke Mitchell, Jason Ritter and Leven Rambin, and Dito Montiel’s “Boulevard,” starring Robin Williams in his final dramatic performance.
