Magnolia Pictures has just acquired the North American Rights for Mister America, a feature-length comedy that is another development of Tim & Eric’s cult Adult Swim show On Cinema.
The film stars the hosts of On Cinema, Gregg Turkington and Tim, and follows Tim as he attempts to enter politics. Eric Noarnicola, a frequent collaborator of Tim & Eric, is attached to the feature as the director. He also co-wrote the film with Tim and Greg. Magnolia is expected to release Mister America in the fall as a satirical statement on the modern politic process.
Since launching On Cinema as an independent podcast in 2011, the project has gone through several iterations, including a web video series, a television series, and a touring production, which inspired an action series spoof Decker.
In a statement to the press, Magnolia President Eamonn Bowles said of the project, “It makes me proud to be an American.”
