Today, Magnolia Pictures announced it has acquired the North American rights to Serious Moonlight, a film about a struggling marriage starring Meg Ryan and Justin Long, among others. The film –directed by first-time director Cheryl Hines– was written by Waitress’ Adrienne Shelly, who was murdered at her New York City apartment building in 2006 by a construction worker. Says Magnolia President Eamonn Bowles in a release: “Cheryl Hines has done a fine job bringing Adrienne Shelly’s final script to life…Serious Moonlight is a fitting tribute to a sorely missed talent and we’re happy to be bringing it to North American audiences.” The film will be released through Magnolia’s VOD program.
