2018 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Andrew Fleming’s Ideal Home

2018 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: Andrew Fleming’s Ideal Home

If Andrew Fleming‘s next film shores up in Park City, it’ll be an almost unrecognizable American independent film landscape from the Sundance of then (2008), and the Sundance of now. Hamlet 2 is remembered for the bidding war won that didn’t payback on its investment, but perhaps Ideal Home will rewrite the larger narrative. A filmmaker who broke in the mid 90’s with Threesome and The Craft, he made a direct to home vid Barefoot (2014) and has mostly been working in television, but he locked up with Steve Coogan again, added his Our Idiot Brother (Sundance entry in 2011) tango partner Paul Rudd with Jake McDorman in the fold for a shoot in May of 2016.

Gist: This follows a bickering gay couple whose extravagant lives are turned upside down by a new addition to the family.

Production Co./Producers: Remstar Studios’ Maxime Rémillard (Polytechnique), Clark Peterson and Aaron Ryder (Rampart), Gabrielle Tana (The Duchess) and Lucky Monkey Pictures‘ Maria Teresa Arida (Vamps).

Prediction: Premieres or a main spotlight at a fest like Tribeca.
