Now playing on VOD and opening in limited release this weekend is writer-director Leslye Headland‘s R rated comedy Bachelorette.  Here’s the official synopsis and trailer:

“On the night before an old friend’s wedding, three bridesmaids go searching for a little fun:  Regan (Kirsten Dunst) an overachieving, über-Maid of Honor who’s secretly smarting over the fact that she’s not the first to marry; Gena (Lizzy Caplan), a whip smart sarcastic who’s actually a closet romantic; and Katie (Isla Fisher), a ditzy beauty who loves the good life.  Though the bride to be (Rebel Wilson) insists on keeping the bachelorette party tame, the women proceed with an after-hours celebration of their own.  Bachelorette also stars Adam Scott, James Marsden and Kyle Bornheimer.”

During the recent Los Angeles press day, I got to speak with Rebel Wilson and Leslye Headland.  We talked about how the film premiered on iTunes and the evolving distribution model, whether the script changed during production, and I got updates on the About Last Night remake and Michael Bay‘s Pain and Gain (Wilson plays a supporting character).  Hit the jump to watch.

Rebel Wilson and Director Leslye Headland:

  • They talk about how it’s coming out on iTunes first and the new distribution model.  Headland also talks about how the indie film movement has changed
  • How did the script/film change during production
  • Pain and Gain talk
