CBS Films Picks Up Toy’s HouseAfter premiering to positive reviews at the Sundance Film Festival, CBS Films snatched up Toy’s House directed by first-time feature film helmer Jordan Vogt-Roberts. The coming-of-age teen comedy was written by Chris Galletta and stars Nick Robinson, Gabriel Basso, and Moises Arias.
The cast also includes Nick Offerman, Megan Mullally, Alison Brie, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Erin Moriarty, Marc Evan Jackson, Thomas Middleditch and Tony Hale.
Announcing the pick-up, Scott Shooman of CBS Films stated: “While comparisons to movies like Stand By Me and The Goonies are inevitable, we found Toy’s House to be a fresh, funny and heartwarming story that is a loving throwback for a new generation.”
And director Vogt-Roberts said, “Toy’s House couldn’t have found a better home than with CBS Films. We set out to make a comedy that was hilarious and full of heart – but most importantly we set out to make a comedy that was engaging. CBS Films is so passionate about this movie and share my thoughts that comedy can be poignant and beautiful. The response at Sundance has been overwhelming and I can’t wait for CBS Films to share Toy’s House with audiences everywhere.”
Toy’s House follows three teenage boys (Robinson, Basso and Arias) as they head into the wilderness with a plan to build a house and live off the land.
