The Space Between starring Kelsey Grammer lands at Paramount
Paramount Pictures has acquired the rights to the Kelsey Grammer-led coming-of-age comedy The Space Between from Dallas Buyers Club producer Rachel Winter in her directorial debut, according to Deadline. The studio has slated the film for a select U.S. theatrical release on April 23 followed by a digital release on June 15.
The film is set during the ’90s music scene in Los Angeles and stars Grammer as Micky Adams, a former rock star way past his prime who finds himself about to be replaced by new up-and-comers in the music scene. As his record label hopes to drop him, a young mailroom clerk (Jackson White) is assigned to spend time with Adams in order to push him out of his contract. In their time together the duo forms an unlikely bond. Together they realize they could be each other’s key to a breakthrough and find success.
Julia Goldani Telles (The Affair, The Girlfriend Experience), Jackson White (Mrs. Fletcher, The Middle), William Fichtner (Mom, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), Paris Jackson (Gringo, Scream) and Andy Daley. The film was written by the late Will Aldis, who wrote Krystal starring Rosario Dawson and produced by Winter before singing on to The Space Between as director. Six-time Emmy award-winner Grammer most recently announced he’d be returning to the role of Frasier in a Paramount+ reboot of the acclaimed eponymous sitcom.
Michael Roiff, Milan Popelka, and Steve Samuels produce The Space Between with director Rachel Winter. Serving as executive producers are Mohamed AlRafi, Petr Zaluda, Ivan Orlic, and Lauren Mekhael. In addition the domestic release, the film will be distributed internationally by Paramount Home Entertainment.
