When Is Mack & Rita (2022) Releasing?

    Diane Keaton, Taylour Paige, and Elizabeth Lail have joined the cast of the romantic comedy Mack & Rita, which is directed by Katie Aselton. As we’ve already said, Rita is portrayed by Keaton, Mack by Lail, and Carla, Rita’s childhood closest friend, by Paige. Now filming is taking place in Los Angeles for the Madeline Walter and Paul Welsh-penned film. International rights are represented by Endeavor and Fortitude.

    The creation of Gravitas Premiere, a new theatrical release label from Gravitas Ventures, an Anthem Sports & Entertainment company, was announced today. Gravitas Premiere will buy 4-6 cast-driven, high production value movies annually and distribute them theatrically with a lot of P&A support. The first movie on Premiere’s schedule is the dramedy Mack & Rita, directed by Katie Aselton and starring Diane Keaton. It will be released on August 12 in cinemas all around the United States and Canada.

    Elizabeth Lail plays Mackenzie Martin in Mack & Rita, who is sick of doing all she has to in her 30s to stay up and advance. Mack has always wished to be just like her grandmother: confident in her own skin, skilled at saying “no,” and mainly unconcerned with what other people think of her. She also loves a nice bulky sweater and going to bed by 8:00 p.m.! Mack accidentally enters a sound bath regression pod during her best friend’s bachelorette party in Palm Springs and comes out a 70-year-old lady. Mack believes that by becoming “Aunt Rita” (Keaton), she would finally be able to embrace herself, but she rapidly discovers that the reality of jumping to old age isn’t quite what she had anticipated.

    Taylour Paige, Loretta Devine, Simon Rex, Dustin Milligan, Amy Hill, Lois Smith, Wendie Malick, Patti Harrison, Martin Short, Addie Weyrich, Aimee Carrero, and Nicole Byer also appear in the Paul Welsh & Madeline Walter-penned movie.

Rath, with executive producers Joseph Restaino, Lauren Beveridge, Brett Beveridge, Jackie Shenoo, Paris Kassidokostas-Latsis, Terry Dougas, Jean-Luc De Fanti, R. Wesley Sierk III, Joseph Panebianco, and Jojo Ryder. The movie will be a Pay One U.S. partner, and on December 20th, customers will be able to watch it online.

    Dustin Milligan will portray Jack, Mack’s neighbour and occasionally dog nanny, who meets Rita and believes her to be Mack’s aunt (who is actually Mack, who has suddenly aged to 70). They click straight instantly, and Jack isn’t concerned in the least by the fact that the person he likes the most in his company is nearly twice his age. On Schitt’s Creek, Milligan played Ted, the neighbourhood vet and Alexis’s love interest, opposite Annie Murphy. He will next be seen in the April 22 premiere of Peacock’s Rutherford Falls. The Gersh Agency and RED Management represent him.

    Luca will be played by Simon Rex. The distribution rights to Sean Baker’s forthcoming movie Red Rocket have just been acquired by A24. Rex plays the lead role.
