IFC Films Sticks With "Flypaper"

IFC Films report they have acquired director Rob Minkoff’s new 'robbery comedy' "Flypaper" from Foresight Unlimited.

Produced by Mark Damon, Patrick Dempsey, and Peter Safran, the film stars Dempsey ("Grey's Anatomy"), Ashley Judd ("Crossing Over"), Jeffrey Tambor ("The Larry Sanders Show") and Tim Blake Nelson ("leaves Of Grass"). Screenplay is by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore ("The Hangover").

IFC Films will release the movie theatrically and on its Video-on-Demand (VOD) platform.

"...'Tripp Kennedy' (Dempsey) ambles into a bank near closing time, just as two different gangs unwittingly converge to rob it. A shoot-out erupts, and Tripp tackles the smart, pretty teller, 'Kaitlin' (Judd), to protect her.

"The gangs (one clearly made up of pros and the other a couple of buffoons named 'Peanut Butter' (Nelson) and 'Jelly' (Pruitt Taylor Vince) have deadlocked themselves in a Mexican standoff. The bank’s security system starts the end-of-day lockdown and seals everyone into the building. As the night evolves, a game of cat and mouse ensues as Tripp and Kaitlin try to save the day and avoid falling in love..."

IFC Films, a division of Sundance Selects and IFC Midnight, is owned and operated by Rainbow Media.
