The Right Kind of Wrong Gets Snapped Up Before its Premiere at TIFF:
True Blood fans will be able to get their Ryan Kwanten (who plays Jason Stackhouse in HBO’s True Blood) fix thanks to Magnolia Pictures (owned by the Wagner/Cuban Company) snapping up the rights to his latest movie, The Right Kind of Wrong.
The movie will make its debut at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) on Thursday September 12th 2013, but it appears the hype surrounding the movie was enough for Magnolia Pictures to grab it early. Magnolia’s president, Eamonn Bowles, has described the movie as being a ‘well directed crowd pleaser’.
The Right Kind of Wrong tells the story of Leo Palamino, a failed-writer-turned-dishwasher who’s main claim to fame is the fact that his ex-wife made a video about him called Why You Suck and then posted it to YouTube. Leo then meets the girl of his dreams – except it is her wedding day and she is getting married to Mr. Perfect!
The movie is produced by Robert Lantos and Ari Lantos. It also stars Catherine O’Hara and Will Sasso. The Right Kind of Wrong is adapted from Tim Sandlin’s novel Sex and Sunsets.
If all goes according to plan, then fans should be able to see The Right Kind of Wrong in cinemas early in 2014. I certainly can’t wait for this movie – how about you? Let us know in the comments below!
