New musical dramedy SERIOUSLY RED by Gracie Ott picked up by Arclight Films

 

 

 

Arclight Films is set to handle worldwide distribution rights for the new musical dramedy Seriously Red directed by Gracie Otto (The Last Impresario) from a script by Krew Boylan who also stars. The film’s ensemble cast also features Rose Byrne (Insidious, Twentieth Century Fox’s Spy, Universal Pictures’ Bridesmaids, Neighbors), Emmy Award winner Bobby Cannavale (HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire,” Ant-Man), and Daniel Webber (Netflix’s  “The Dirt,” Escape From Pretoria). Production is currently underway in location in Northern Rivers, Australia.

 

In this rowdy and rambunctious musical comedy Red (Krew Boylan) is at a crossroads in her life. A vivacious and hilarious redhaired woman grappling with high expectations and low self-esteem, she pours herself a cup of ambition and trades her 9 to 5 career in real estate for a life under the spotlight as a Dolly Parton impersonator. After misreading her work party’s dress code, Red tumbles outta bed into a new world of tribute artists and impersonators in her wild and messy journey that includes romancing a Kenny Rogers impersonator. Red has to lose herself in order to find herself. As Dolly Parton says, “Be Yourself Because Everyone is taken’.”

 

Music is the backbone of the film that includes Dolly Parton’s iconic discography in addition to a soundtrack of iconic musical artists and re-recordings.

 

Seriously Red is created by an extraordinary all-female filmmaking team, which at Arclight Films we are proud to always champion. The film is a fun, upbeat celebration of women and their journey to self-acceptance. It’s a powerful film that appeals to worldwide distributors who understand that audiences will immediately fall in love with the story, the beautifully drawn characters… and the music!” said Arclight Films Chairman Gary Hamilton.


Seriously Red is produced by Jessica Carrera from The Dollhouse Pictures and Robyn Kershaw from Robyn Kershaw Productions. Rose Byrne and Danny Nozell are Executive Producers. This is the debut feature film from Dollhouse Pictures, a company founded by Rose Byrne. Roadshow Films will distribute the film in Australia.

 

Arclight Films’ current slate of films also includes the following completed titles: romcom A Very Senior High; horror-romance Carmilla which premiered at the Edinburgh Film Festival; horror-thriller The Devil To Pay; Twist starring Michael Caine, Lena Heady, and Rita Ora; sports drama Streamline with Jason Isaacs and Levi Miller; Venice Film Festival Official Selection The Furnace; magical coming-of-age story Chasing Wonders starring Paz Vega and Edward James Olmos; martial arts film The Foggy Mountain; horror-thriller Bloody Hell; cult thriller The Sinners created by Courtney Paige; the warmhearted comedy Butter; Here Are the Young Men starring Travis Fimmel, Dean-Charles Chapman, Finn Cole, and Anya Taylor-Joy; haunting thriller Let It Snow; Sundance’s critically acclaimed sci-fi thriller Possessor starring Andrea Riseborough, Christopher Abbott, Sean Bean, and Jennifer Jason Leigh, directed by Brandon Cronenberg released on October 2nd in the U.S. by NEON.
