Cannes 2011: Insidious distributor Playing The Field

Gerard Butler vehicle Playing The Field has scored a US release with Insidious and Soul Surfer distributor FilmDistrict.

The film, which is currently in production in Louisiana, sees Butler's broke playboy American Football star trying to reconnect with his ex-wife by coaching his son's soccer team.

Problem is once he starts, the attentions of the bored, lonely soccer moms from his son's team are too good a temptation to resist.

Jessica Biel, Uma Thurman, Judy Greer, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Dennis Quaid are all on board, and Gabriel Muccino ( The Pursuit of Happyness, Seven Pounds ) is directing.

FilmDistrict is producer Graham King's ( The Departed ) venture, the company scored big in the US with the low budget Soul Surfer and Insidious both making big returns.
