Here's a synopsis: Inspired by the Japanese film, 2LDK, The story centers around Kate and Vanessa, costars on a past-its-prime sitcom and roommates in real life. When they realize they are both up for the same lead role in a big movie that could catapult their careers into stardom, the roommates will go from best friends to worst enemies over the course of one action-packed night.
Connolly said: "I'm excited for the opportunity to work with Jessica again and re-imagine this great story for a new audience. It's been great working with everyone at Atlas as we gear up for production."
Atlas Entertainment's Alex Gartner will join William Green and Aaron Ginsburg of Atlas Independent to produce. Highland Film Group (HFG) will introduce the film to international buyers at the upcoming European Film Market in Berlin.
