Buddymoon, the Slamdance Film Festival Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature, has been picked up for worldwide distribution by Gravitas Ventures. Formerly titled Honey Buddies, the bromantic comedy features Grimm co-stars David Giuntoli and Claire Coffee as well as Flula Borg from Pitch Perfect 2.
The comedy was co-written by Alex Simmons, David Giuntoli, and Flula Borg. The three friends also executive produced Buddymoon and Simmons made his feature film directorial debut with the project. Gravitas is planning a July 1, 2016 release in theaters and On Demand.
“Gravitas couldn’t be happier in working with the Buddymoon team,” said Dan Fisher, Sr. Director of Acquisitions from Gravitas. “From the moment the opening credits rolled at Slamdance we knew this was a special film that balances zany humor and true camaraderie set against the beautiful backdrop of the Oregon wilderness.”
The Plot: When David (Giuntoli) is left by his fiancée just days before the wedding, Flula (Borg), his relentlessly upbeat best man, insists that the pair go on David’s previously planned honeymoon together: a seven-day backpacking trip through the breathtaking mountains of Oregon. On the trail, the two friends cross paths with a multitude of personalities and creatures while the unrelenting trek tests their friendship and their very lives.
