Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions have picked up Juliet, Naked for distribution, which is based on the book by Nick Hornby.
Rose Byrne plays Annie, who is in a strained relationship with Duncan (O’Dowd). Duncan is obsessed with musician Tucker Crowe (Hawke) whose 25-year-old hit resurfaces and transforms everyone’s lives overnight.
Tamara Jenkins, Jim Taylor and Evgenia Peretz have adapted the screenplay and producer Judd Apatow joins Albert Berger, Ron Yerxa, Barry Mendel and Jeffrey Soros as financiers. Simon Horsman, Hornby, Thorsten Schumacher and Patrick Murray are executive producers.
Juliet, Naked is due for a summer release.
