Former “Glee” actress Dianna Agron has joined Jason Sudeikis and Rebecca Hall in the romantic comedy “Tumbledown,” which began principal photography in Massachusetts this week.
Agron co-stars with Joe Manganiello, Blythe Danner, Griffin Dunne and Richard Masur in director Sean Mewshaw’s first feature, written by first-time screenwriter Desi Van Til. The filmmakers previously collaborated on the short film “Last Night,” which starred Frances McDormand and premiered at the Venice Film Festival.
“Tumbledown,” produced by Kristin Hahn of Indigo Films and Aaron L. Gilbert and Margot Hand of Bron Studios, takes place deep in the forests of Maine.
Hannah (Hall) is unable to move on after the death of her husband, an acclaimed musician and the subject of a biography she’s struggling to write, when she meets Andrew, a brash New York academic who has a different take on her husband’s life — and death. The unlikely pair must collaborate to craft the famous singer’s story and begin to write the next chapter in their lives together.
CAA packaged the project and will be representing North American rights. International sales are being handled by Sierra/Affinity. Financing provided by Bron Studios, CW Media Finance, Corner Piece Capital and Coastal Capital.
Van Til and Mewshaw are managed by Anonymous Content.
