On Cinema, the perpetually shape-shifting comedy project from Tim Heidecker and Gregg Turkington, will soon be in cinemas. Magnolia Pictures has acquired the North American rights to Mister America, the new film in the oddball franchise.
A press release offers a brief synopsis of the film:
Mister America follows Heidecker’s attempt to enter the world of politics. After beating a murder charge for selling faulty e-cigarettes at an EDM festival, Tim seeks revenge by running a campaign to unseat the San Bernardino District Attorney. Fueled by ego and ignorance, he tries to surmount a lack of experience, funds and likability by personally connecting with unsuspecting constituents. It does not go well.
Director Eric Notarnicola explains, “We unleashed Tim into the real world to run the worst campaign in modern history, and document the process.” Magnolia President Eamon Bowles adds that “Mister America is a wonderful tribute to our political process at work. It makes me proud to be an American.”
Mister America doesn’t have a release date yet, but Magnolia suggests the film will be released sometime this fall.
