Samuel Goldwyn Films is headed to Nerdland.

The company has acquired North American rights to the irreverent animated comedy starring Patton Oswalt and Paul Rudd as a pair of slackers with a plan to become famous (or at least infamous) by the end of the night. The film is slated to hit theaters in December.

Chris Prynoski directed Nerdland, which costars Hannibal Buress, Riki Lindhome, and Kate Micucci.

The movie, which debuted at the Tribeca Film Fesitval in April and will screen at Beyond Fest this weekend, is the first feature from the animation studio Titmouse (TV’s The Venture Bros., Metalocalypse).
