Paper Street Films/Tom Sawyer Entertainment announces the completion of principal photography of actor Josh Radnor‘s feature film directorial debut “HappyThankYouMorePlease.” Radnor, the star of the Emmy-nominated CBS comedy HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER wrote the screenplay and co-stars along with Malin Akerman (WATCHMEN), Kate Mara (IRON MAN 2), Zoe Kazan (REVOLUTIONARY ROAD), Pablo Schreiber (THE WIRE) and Tony Hale of ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT. Academy Award Nominee Richard Jenkins (THE VISITOR) rounds out the cast of this New York City based project.
“HappyThankYouMorePlease” follows six New Yorkers dealing with love, friendship, and gratitude at a time when they’re too old to be precocious and not ready to be adults.
The film is produced by Jesse Hara of Tom Sawyer Entertainment and Benji Kohn, Austin Stark and Chris Papavasiliou of Paper Street Films. It is also executive produced by Glenn Williamson (producer of this spring’s indie hit SUNSHINE CLEANING) and Peter Sterling, and Bingo Gubelmann of Paper Street Films.
“Josh Radnor has crafted a story that is incredibly funny and poignant at the same time,” said producer Jesse Hara. “We feel honored to bring such a fresh and original voice to the screen.”
