Samuel Goldwyn Films has acquired the distribution rights to Better Living Through Chemistry, starring Sam Rockwell (Seven Psychopaths, Iron Man 2) and Olivia Wilde (Cowboys and Aliens, The Change-Up), the co-directing debut for scribes David Posamentier and Geoff Moore, whose screenplay landed in the Number 13 spot on the 2010 Blacklist. Better Living Through Chemistry is a dark comedy about a ho-hum small town pharmacist who gets involved with a married customer (Wilde) who introduces him to the finer things in life – recreational prescription drugs. She isn’t only interested in him for the drug connection, though; she needs help killing her husband. Michelle Monaghan (Gone Baby Gone, Mission Impossible 111), Ray Liotta (Goodfellas, The Place Beyond The Pines), and Jane Fonda (Lee Daniel’s The Butler, Monster-In-Law) also star.
Felipe Marino and Joe Neurauter are producing with Mission Films and Occupant Entertainment. Better Living Through Chemistry is out March 14.
