IFC Films will release the SXSW all-star comedy Spin Me Round, directed by Jeff Baena (The Little Hours), co-written with lead Alison Brie, in theaters, on VOD and stream exclusively on AMC+ in Summer 2022.
Spin Me Round marks the third IFC Films feature with Brie, who most recently starred in The Rental, the Dave Franco-directed thriller that was a hit at drive-ins nationwide and on VOD during the summer of 2020.
Rounding out the cast is Alessandro Nivola (The Many Saints of Newark), Aubrey Plaza (the forthcoming Emily The Criminal), Molly Shannon (The Other Two), Zach Woods (Silicon Valley), Ayden Mayeri (The Afterparty), Ben Sinclair (High Maintenance), Tim Heidecker (On Cinema at the Cinema), Debby Ryan (Insatiable), Fred Armisen (Portlandia).
Baena and Brie previously collaborated on Horse Girl together, which Brie starred in and co-wrote with Baena, who directed. Brie also appeared in Baena’s The Little Hours and Joshy.
In Spin Me Round, Brie stars as the manager of an Italian restaurant chain who wins the opportunity to attend the franchise’s educational immersion program in Italy. What she thought would be a romantic getaway devolves into chaos and catastrophe.
Director and co-writer, Jeff Baena added, “I was really impressed with Arianna and her team’s passion, thoughtfulness, and innovation coupled with their track record of ushering in so many incredible independent films. I’m so grateful to have an opportunity to finally partner with IFC Films and share Spin Me Round with the world.”
