Writer-director Jennifer Westfeldt's Friends with Kids, which debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival, was acquired by Lionsgate for theatrical distribution. A release date hasn't been locked down yet, but Jennifer Westfeldt indicated a spring 2012 release is likely.
Adam Scott and Jennifer Westfeldt star as best friends who decide to have a child together while also dating other people. Jon Hamm, who has been romantically involved with Jennifer Westfeldt for several years, also stars alongside Kristen Wiig, Megan Fox, Maya Rudolph, Chris O'Dowd, and Edward Burns.
Millennium Films and CBS Films were also said to be vying for the distribution rights to the romantic comedy, before Lionsgate sealed the deal last night.
