CBS Films announced today it has acquired domestic rights to the coming-of-age comedy Toy's House. Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts from a screenplay by Chris Galletta, the movie premiered this past weekend at the Sundance Film Festival.

Toy's House stars Nick Robinson, Gabriel Basso, Moises Arias, Nick Offerman, Megan Mullally, Alison Brie, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Erin Moriarty, Marc Evan Jackson, Thomas Middleditch and Tony Hale. Toy's House follows three teenage boys (Robinson, Basso and Arias) as they head into the wilderness with a plan to build a house and live off the land. The film marks the feature directorial debut of Jordan Vogt-Roberts.

Vogt-Roberts commented: "'Toy's House' couldn’t have found a better home than with CBS Films. We set out to make a comedy that was hilarious and full of heart – but most importantly we set out to make a comedy that was engaging. CBS Films is so passionate about this movie and share my thoughts that comedy can be poignant and beautiful. The response at Sundance has been overwhelming and I can’t wait for CBS Films to share 'Toy's House' with audiences everywhere.”

Scott Shooman who negotiated on behalf of CBS Films said, “While comparisons to movies like 'Stand By Me' and 'The Goonies' are inevitable, we found 'Toy's House' to be a fresh, funny and heartwarming story that is a loving throwback for a new generation."

Tyler Davidson of Low Spark Films, Peter Saraf of Big Beach and John Hodges are the producers with Richard Rothfeld and Jordan Vogt-Roberts serving as executive producers.
