Exclusive: It does look like IFC is closing a deal to distribute the Justin Long-written and acted indie rom com “A Case of You.” Kat Coiro directed this very amusing and charming film which was debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival in April. Justin wrote the film with his brother and co-star Keir O’Donnell. Long and Evan Rachel Wood star as the main duo who, of course, are thrown together by odd circumstances.
There are very humorous performances by Busy Phillips, Peter Dinklage, Vince Vaughn, and Sam Rockwell. Holly Wiersma, Logan Levy and Cassian Elwes lead a list of producers who heard from several suitors after Tribeca. Long and co. are still hopeful they can get Joni Mitchell to help them with rights to her song. But even without it, they’ve got a gem of a film.
