The NYC-based distributor has acquired writer-director Victor Levin’s romantic dramedy that premiered at Tribeca in April. IFC Films hasn’t set a U.S. release date for 5 To 7, which stars Anton Yelchin as an aspiring novelist who has an affair with a French diplomat’s wife (Berenice Marlohe). Cultures, worldviews, personal ethics and dietary preferences clash as love deepens. Olivia Thirlby, Lambert Wilson, Frank Langella and Glenn Close co-star in the film produced by Julie Lynn and Bonnie Curtis for Mockingbird Pictures, Sam Englebardt and William Johnson for Demarest Films. Executive producers are David Greathouse, Ruth Mutch and Benjamin and Theresa Castellano-Wood. The deal was negotiated by Arianna Bocco, SVP Acquisitions at Sundance Selects/IFC Films, with CAA and WME Global on behalf of the filmmakers.
On behalf of the site and our dear visitors, we would like to wish our lovely Bérénice a very happy birthday. She celebrated her 35th birthday yesterday and we hope she had a beautiful day spent with her loved ones.

Best recognized as a writer, Victor Levin has penned episodes for such popular television programs as the marriage-centered sitcom Mad About You and the 1960s set drama Mad Men, as well as scripted such charming movies as Win a Date With Tad Hamilton! and Then She Found Me. However, in 1999 he dabbled in directing, helming an ep of Mad About You along with a little known venture called The Successor. But his latest script, 5 to 7, has spurred his return to the director’s chair, and has stirred up a fantastically promising cast.
Mockingbird Pictures in conjunction with Demarest Films has unveiled a press release revealing six-time Oscar nominee Glenn Close (Albert Nobbs), Oscar nominee Frank Langella (Frost/Nixon), Bérénice Marlohe (Skyfall), Lambert Wilson (Of Gods and Men) and Olivia Thirlby (Being Flynn) have joined Anton Yelchin for this New York-set romantic comedy.
5 to 7 stars Yelchin as a young, aspiring novelist named Brian, who is engaged in a 5 to 7 affair with Arielle the gorgeous wife of a French diplomat. Notably, Yelchin was attached to the project last fall along with Diane Kruger, who was slated to play Arielle. However, the latest press release makes no mention of her, and has Bond Girl Marlohe in this role. Filling out the cast, Wilson will play Arielle’s cuckolded husband, Valery. Thirlby is set for the part of Brian’s friend and editor, Jane, while Langella and Close will take on the roles of his parents, Sam and Arlene.
5 to 7 will be seeking distribution sales at the Cannes Film Market. It’s projected to hit theaters in 2014.
