Bob Byington's "Somebody Up There Likes Me"
Tribeca Film has aquired SXSW comedy "Somebody Up There Likes Me," starring Keith Poulson, Nick Offerman ("Parks & Recreation") and Jess Weixler ("Teeth"), and featuring rotoscoped sequences courtesy of Bob Sabiston ("A Scanner Darkly"). Check out the trailer below.

In the film, Bob Byington ("Harmony and Me,"  "RSO [Registered Sex Offender]") mixes actors with non-pros in this fable about a man watching his life pass by. Max (Keith Poulson) and his chum Sal (Nick Offerman) and the woman they love, Lyla (Jess Weixler), stumble through thirty-five years of various unsatisfying relationships. Vampire Weekend’s Chris Baio provides the score for the film, which is produced by Offerman.

Tribeca Films plans a spring 2013 theatrical release date, with the usual on-demand platforms of iTunes, Amazon, et al.
