Magnolia Experiments With “Humpday”

Magnolia Pictures has landed worldwide rights to Lynn Shelton’s indie buddy comedy “Humpday”, snatching up the rights for mid-six figures after a bidding war says Indiewire.

Mark Duplass and Joshua Leonard play two straight best friends, old college recently reunited, who decide to film themselves having sex with each other for an art project to be entered into ‘Hump Fest’, Seattle’s annual amateur and locally produced porn festival.

The film premiered on Friday in the Sundance Film Festival’s competition section and scored good notices. Magnolia will launch the pic on VOD before an August theatrical opening.
