A24 has picked up rights to Gillian Robespierre's comedy Obvious Child. They also took Lynn Shelton's comedic drama Laggies, making the acquisition the second film the American distribution company has taken during this year's Sundance Film Festival.
Jenny Slate stars as a Brooklyn comedian that gets dumped, fired and finds out she is pregnant in the midst of the most chaotic Valentine's Day of her life. Jake Lacy, David Cross and Gabby Hoffman co-star.
Gillian Robespierre directed the project from a script she wrote. Elisabeth Holm produced. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on Friday. A24 is planning a 2014 theatrical release.
