Modern Life Is Rubbish: acquired by Universal Pictures

Screen Daily reports that feature film Modern Life Is Rubbish, which Tom filmed last October / November, has been acquired by Universal Pictures in Berlin. We still have no details about Tom's character other than his name.

The Exchange and Serotonin Films have struck a multi-territory deal with Universal Pictures Home Entertainment Group on Modern Life Is Rubbish.

The studio has picked up Europe, Asia and Latin America on Daniel Jerome Gill’s feature directorial debut starring Josh Whitehouse and Freya Mavor. Ian Hart, Steven Mackintosh, Tom Riley, Jessie Cave, Matt Milne and Will Merrick round out the cast.

Modern Life Is Rubbish is styled as being in the vein of (500) Days Of Summer and centres on two people who relive the highlights of their ailing relationship as they divide their cherished record collection.

“We are very excited to have Universal as a partner on this winning movie,” said Brian O’Shea of The Exchange. “Universal’s commitment to this picture shows that Modern Life Is Rubbish is going to have commercial staying power.”

Piccadilly Pictures, Lipsync, Masnomis, Trailblazer Pictures and the BFI Film Fund financed the project.
