Blue Fox Entertainment announced today they have acquired the worldwide rights to the offbeat comedy Unexpected, starring Anna Camp (Pitch Perfect, The Lovebirds, “The Good Wife”), Joseph Mazzello (Bohemian Rhapsody, The Social Network), Neil Flynn (“The Middle,” “Scrubs) and Ryann Shane (“Banshee”). Directed by actor David Hunt (“Homeland”, “Mad Men”) and written by Rodney Vaccaro, Unexpected is currently in post-production. Blue Fox Entertainment will distribute the film in North America and launched worldwide sales in Cannes.
Patricia Heaton (“Everybody Loves Raymond,” “The Middle”), and Hunt produced the film under their FourBoys Entertainment banner. Unexpected centers around music critic Bob who is struggling with a demotion, addicted to Zoloft, and trying to wrangle the menagerie of animals that his wife Amy has accumulated. Will adopting a baby cure their existential angst? Or should they rescue another duck?
The deal was negotiated by Blue Fox Entertainment’s James Huntsman and UTA Independent.
