Broken Lizard’s Freeloaders has been picked up for distribution outside of North America by Myriad Pictures. Starring Jane Seymour, Olivia Munn, Dave Foley, and Clifton Collins Jr, Freeloaders is the story of a group of slackers who live in a rock star’s mansion. “They discover their cherished lifestyle is threatened when the musician decides to sell his pad,” according to the Myriad Pictures press release.
Dan Rosen (Dead Man’s Curve) directed from a script he co-wrote with Dave Gibbs. Broken Lizard’s long-time collaborator Richard Perello and Julia Dray produced the film. Adam Duritz from Counting Crows also produced the comedy as well as Thomas Gardner and Gregory P. Cimino II.
“When we read the script for Freeloaders, we jumped at the chance to help shepherd the filmmakers through,” stated Jay Chandrasekhar of Broken Lizard. “Having been to some pretty wild parties in our lives we knew this would make a very funny movie.”
“We have been big fans of the Broken Lizard comedies for some time,” said Myriad CEO Kirk D’Amico. “We are delighted to be working with the producers to bring this comedy with big laughs to the international marketplace.”
