Paramount Acquires Charlie Kaufman and Duke Johnson’s “Anomalisa” and Will Release It in December

(via Deadline)

Anomalisa is set for a limited theatrical release on Dec. 30th.

What started as a stop motion that received a whole lot of love on Kickstarter has gotten a whole lot of love on the film festival circuit. 

The brilliant Charlie Kaufman wrote and co-directed, with Starburns IndustriesDuke JohnsonAnomalisa, which Paramount Pictures has acquired while at the Toronto International Film Festival for distribution very soon.

So, come Christmas time, we’ll get to see both Star Wars and Kaufman’s vision of “a man crippled by the mundanity of his life”. Sounds pretty great to us.
