Happily: Saban Films Acquires North American And UK Rights For Dark Comedy

Deadline is exclusively reporting that Saban Films have acquired the North American and UK rights for the dark comedy thriller Happily.


The film focuses on Tom and Janet, who have been happily married for years. But a visit from a mysterious stranger leads to a dead body, a lot of questions, and a tense couples’ trip with friends who may not actually be friends at all.


Saban Films’ Bill Bromiley released a statement saying:

Happily is a twisted dark comedy told through fresh voices with a fantastic ensemble cast. BenDavid truly keeps you guessing throughout the film and we can’t wait to bring it to our audiences.

The film was financed by Chuckie Duff’s Common Wall Media and produced by Electric Dynamite’s Jack Black and Spencer Berman, Indy Entertainment’s Nancy Leopardi and Ross Kohn.
