The Longest Week
Taglines: She had him at “I’m your best friend’s girlfriend”
The Longest Week is a comedy-drama film, written and directed by Peter Glanz. The film stars Olivia Wilde, Jason Bateman and Billy Crudup in the lead roles. It has been produced by Uday Chopra, along with Neda Armian. It is the first project of Yash Raj Film’s Hollywood production house.
ason Bateman stars as Conrad Valmont, heir to a hotel fortune, who is cut off from his allowance following his parents abrupt divorce and tossed out into the unforgiving streets of the Upper West Side. Luckily, he is taken in by his old friend Dylan (Crudup), and returns the favor by immediately falling for Dylan’s girlfriend Beatrice (Wilde). As Conrad attempts to woo Beatrice while keeping both their relationship and his bank balance secret, Dylan tries to set him up with Jocelyn (Slate). Committed to the charade that he eventually finds difficult to maintain, Conrad quickly realizes his charm can only extend so far into debt.
“‘The Longest Week’ and the performances of Jason Bateman, Olivia Wilde and Billy Crudupoffer a refreshing new perspective on a timeless love triangle. With the film, Peter Glanz follows in the great tradition of Woody Allen, Whit Stillman and Wes Anderson in incisively and hilariously portraying the challenges of falling in and out of love in Manhattan” remarked Gravitas Ventures founder / CEO Nolan Gallagher.
The Director and the financier had two very different versions of the film, including both the cut and presentation (poster, trailer, marketing, et al). A Director’s Cut still might come out at some point.
