After donning Danny Zuko’s leather jacket in Grease: Live and battling bugs in the CBS summer show BrainDead, Aaron Tveit is entering the dating comedy realm with his new film Better Off Single, which has been given a fall release date. Gravitas Ventures secured the worldwide rights to the new comedy from writer-director Benjamin Cox (Fortune Sun), it was announced Wednesday.
Better Off Single follows Charlie (Tveit) on a journey of self-discovery and finding love after ditching his job and his girlfriend (Odd Mom Out‘s Abby Elliott) on the same day. The film also stars Lauren Miller Rogen (For a Good Time Call…), Kal Penn (Deadbeat), Chris Elliott (Schitt’s Creek), and Lewis Black (Inside Out).
“We set out to make a smart, funny movie – one that would only be possible by the means of talented collaborators on both sides of the camera,” Cox said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to extend that collaboration to include Gravitas. We can’t wait for audiences to get a look.”
The film, Cox’s feature directorial debut, was produced by Tracey Becker (Finding Neverland). Executive producers include Russell Carpenter, Nadav Besner, Eitan Melamed, Erica Leone, Reza Taleghani, Elisa Pugliese, Kim Winther, Red Sanders, and Tom Cappuso.
Better Off Single arrives in theaters and on demand on Oct. 7.
