This has been a slow release, we've not heard much about it for a while.

Yeah which is sometimes the case with indie flicks. I guess this is not an easy sell despite the stellar cast and they don't know how to market it. Too quirky. There's a release set for March 2013 in Australia.

I'm assuming it's along the lines of Juno and Little Miss Sunshine, movies which managed to develop a really strong following and lots of hype, so something along those lines would be good. They need to know their target market.

Pic also features James Caan, Billy Crystal, Johnny Knoxville and Rosie Perez.

"Apartments" was financed by Ben Feingold and Ash R. Shah, who also produced with Timothy Wayne Peternel, David Hillary and Bonnie Timmermann. Pic's scribe Chris Millis exec produced, along with Feingold, John Glynn and Bridget McMeel.

Sony is finalizing the film's distribution plans, including the label by which to launch "Apartments." The studio likely will release the film next year.

SMALL APARTMENTS will close the Ithaca International Fantastic Film Festival in New York on Sunday, November 18 at 8:45 PM. It will be introduced and followed by a Q&A with writer Chris Millis.

http://ithacafilmfestival.com/portfolio ... s-akerlund

“…for those willing to be taken into a world—and a life—where nothing is to be expected, Small Apartments is an absolute treat.”—Bryce Renninger (Indiewire)

The screening will be introduced and followed by a Q&A by original story and screenplay writer Chris Millis.

When a clumsy deadbeat accidentally kills his landlord, he decides he has to do everything he can to hide the body—but lust, the death of his beloved brother, and a crew of misfit characters force him on a journey where fortune awaits him. Director Jonas Akerlund (The Prodigy’s “Smack My Bitch Up”) does an amazing job bringing to life Chris Millis’ prize-winning script, with the help of Matt Lucas’ astonishing performance as Franklin Franklin, as well as a high-profile cast of supporting actors including Billy Crystal, James Caan, Dolph Lungreen, and Jackass’ Johnny Knoxville. Small Apartments is one of the unexpected small films of 2012 that definitely deserves to be seen, discussed, and promoted among your friends!

Bad news SMALL APARTMENT was supposed to screen today at the Ithaca International Fantastic Film Festival in New York and was cancelled by the distributor for "piracy policy" (or is it just an excuse because they don't believe in the film?)...
Bad news for the festival- We tried hard for the last 3 days to fix the problem but unfortunately the distributor and producers decided to block the screening of Jonas Akerlund's Small Apartments for 'piracy policy'. Screenplay writer Chris Millis just sent us an email to apologize on the situation for which is not responsible, neither is Jonas. Anyway we are now working hard to find another film to fill the spot- Don't worry film lovers, you'll not be disappointed ! Update soon-
Leos Carax's HOLLY MOTORS will replace it and profit from it's already proven acclaims and festival buzz.

Culver City, CA (12/17/12) – Matt Lucas (Alice In Wonderland, Bridesmaids, TV’s “Little Britain”)leads a hilarious all-star cast in the new comedy SMALL APARTMENTS, available February 19th from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. Directed by award-winning film and music video director Jonas Åkerlund (Spun, Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi”), the film premiered at the 2012 South by Southwest Film Festival. Nick Nunziata of Chud.com hailed the film, saying "They don't make them like this anymore. Actually they've never made them like this before."

To add to his chaos, a drunk investigator (Billy Crystal) is questioning him about his landlord. But none of this fazes Franklin. He dreams of Switzerland,and waits each day for an envelope from his institutionalized brother (James Marsden). Then, one day the envelope doesn’t come and Franklin becomes unhinged. Little does he know...his crazy brother has the secret that will set him free.

SMALL APARTMENTS was written by Chris Millis, based on his novel. It was produced by Ash R. Shah, Timothy Wayne Peternel, David Hillary and Bonnie Timmermann. Ben Feingold executive produced, along with John Glynn, Bridget McMeel and Chris Millis.
