MPI Media Group has acquired all domestic distribution rights to Uncle Nick, a comedy starring Brian Posehn (Mr. Show, The Sarah Silverman Program). The film is directed by Chris Kasick (Attack of the Show!), with screenplay by Mike Demski and executive produced by Errol Morris. The deal was negotiated by Josh Braun and Matt Burke of Submarine Entertainment on behalf of the filmmakers and Greg Newman, EVP on behalf of MPI Media Group. The film is slated for release in late 4th quarter of 2015, in time for the holidays. Flick is about lewd, drunken Uncle Nick (Posehn), who stumbles his way through his brother’s cookie cutter-family’s annual Christmas Eve gathering.
“Chris Kasick has worked with me for many years,” Morris says. “Uncle Nick is his first feature and it’s a film with three ingredients I love — sick, sad, and funny — a cross between Kasick, the Farrelly Brothers, and me.”
