Paramount+ today announced that its upcoming original film from Paramount Players and MRC Film’s Landline Pictures, the comedy Jerry & Marge Go Large, starring Bryan Cranston and Annette Bening, will premiere on Friday, June 17, exclusively on Paramount+ in the U.S.
The film will roll out on Paramount+ in Australia, Canada and Latin America and in additional markets where the service will be available later this year. First-look photos from the film were also released.
Jerry & Marge Go Large is inspired by the remarkable true story of retiree Jerry Selbee (Cranston), who discovers a mathematical loophole in the Massachusetts lottery and, with the help of his wife, Marge (Bening), wins millions and uses the money to revive their small Michigan town.
In addition to Cranston and Bening, the cast includes Larry Wilmore, Rainn Wilson, Anna Camp, Ann Harada, Jake McDorman, Michael McKean and Uly Schlesinger.
Jerry & Marge Go Large is directed by Academy Award winner David Frankel (Marley and Me, The Devil Wears Prada) and written by Emmy nominee Brad Copeland (Wild Hogs, Arrested Development).
The film is produced by Academy Award nominee Gil Netter (The Blind Side, Life of Pi), Levantine Films (Hidden Figures) and executive produced by Kevin Halloran (Ford v Ferrari).
Amy Baer also produced via MRC Film’s Landline Pictures – the film is the label’s first production.
Netter, Tory Metzger and Renee Witt from Levantine Films developed and packaged the film based on the original article by Jason Fagone for The Huffington Post.
Jerry & Marge Go Large will stream exclusively on Paramount+ in the U.S., Australia, Canada and Latin America and in additional markets where the service will be available later this year.
The film will be distributed by Paramount Global Content Distribution in remaining international markets.
