Leighton Meester, Gillian Jacobs and Adam Brody are set to star in the new comedy Life Partners, the directorial debut of Susanna Fogel, co-written by Fogel and writing partner/producer Joni Lefkowitz. The film will also star Academy Award nominee Gabourey Sidibe, Abby Elliott and Beth Dover. Myriad Pictures will handle the foreign sales for the film, and will introduce it to buyers at next month's Cannes Marche du Film.

Jordana Mollick and Brendan Bragg of Black Sheep Management & Productions are producing along with Riva Marker and Daniela Taplin Lundberg. Daniel Crown will executive produce with Anne O'Shea of Minerva Productions and Peter Touche of Sandia Media.

Said D'Amico, "This is a timely and delightful comedy, which explores contemporary friendships between women as they cope with the modern world. We are so pleased to be working with everyone involved in making this film."

The script was a part of the 2012 Sundance Writers Lab and the 2012 Sundance Creative Producing Fellowship and is a comedy about a codependent friendship between two very different girls - type-A Paige (Gillian Jacobs) and lesbian slacker Sasha (Leighton Meester) - who have made a pact. Paige has vowed that she won't get married until Sasha has the same legal right. All is fine until Paige meets Tim (Brody), a young and charming doctor- and as this relationship heats up, Paige and Sasha have to learn how to work Tim into their friendship. As a crucial vote on gay marriage approaches, the threesome struggle with the issues of love, friendship, and loyalty.
