Warner Bros. has acquired Tig Notaro and Stephanie Allynne‘s romantic comedy, Am I OK? from the Sundance International Film Festival, as reported by Variety. The movie will be released on HBO Max either later this year, or early next year.
Written by Lauren Pomerantz, and starring Dakota Johnson, Jermaine Fowler, Kiersey Clemons, Molly Gordon, and Sean Hayes, the movie “follows 32-year-old Lucy (Johnson), who lives in Los Angeles and figures out later in life that the reason her dates with the opposite gender never end with anything more than a handshake is because, well, she’s not attracted to men. With the help of her life-long friend Jane (Sonoya Mizuno), Lucy attempts to navigate coming out in her 30s.”
The movie was met with a positive critical reception during the festival, and caused quite a buzz during sales, which are being held online until January 30th. Johnson also starred in Cooper Raiff‘s Cha Cha Real Smooth, which was sold to Apple TV+ for $15 million a couple of days ago. As for our Sundance coverage of the Am I OK?, be on the lookout for editor-in-chief Joey Magidson’s review tomorrow morning!
