The Spectacular Now
From the minds of Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, who both brought us 'The Hangover,' the flick follows two buddies who surprise their high school bestie, Jeff Chang, with a crazy night out on the town for his 21st birthday, even though he's got the job interview of his life early the next morning. Expectedly, once Jeff gets too drunk to handle (and everything seems to fall into chaos), the night quickly becomes one of mayhem as the duo try to get him home and sobered up before morning.
We had the opportunity to briefly chat with Teller about, among other things, the making of '21 & Over,' the one scene with Skylar Astin he'll probably never forget, his Sundance hit 'The Spectacular Now,' and taking a break from acting.
With the Sundance Film Festival in full swing, we'll be hearing plenty of acquisition news from now until at least the end of the month. One of the more popular titles shown, 'The Spectacular Now', James Ponsoldt's coming-of-age drama, has just made a big distribution splash, hooking up with A24 for a North American release this summer.
More details after the break.
