Picturehouse Nabs Vaughn’s Heartland Tour

Picturehouse and New Line have landed all international rights to the comedy performance documentary “Vince Vaughn’s Wild West Comedy Show: 30 Days & 30 Nights — Hollywood to the Heartland.”

Ari Sandel’s film follows the actor as he leads a team of unknown comics on a monthlong tour across 30 cities in the US. In addition to showcasing stage performances with such guests as Justin Long and Dwight Yoakam, the film takes a behind-the-scenes look at the lives of Vaughn and comedians Bret Ernst, Ahmed Ahmed, Sebastian Maniscalco and John Caparulo.

The move renders void a deal announced by the Weinstein Co. at September’s Toronto Film Festival. A minimum of $7-$8 million is expected to be spent on the film’s marketing and a Spring 2008 release is planned.
