'Kids Are All Right' Writer & Mark Ruffalo Say 'Thanks for Sharing'
In case you didn't notice, we're in Park City, Utah for the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, and last year this is where The Kids Are All Right made its debut. Now that it's awards season, Lisa Cholodenko's film is getting plenty of attention for its performances and writing. Now the film's writer, Stuart Blumberg, looks to be re-teaming with Mark Ruffalo for a new film called Thanks for Sharing. Details aren't abundant but the project would serve as Blumberg's directorial debut and follows three sex addicts in a recovery clinic together. Ruffalo will be playing one of the sex addicts, but no one is mentioned for the other two roles.
The story comes from The Daily Mail, and The Playlist (who found the story) point out that sexual addiction is a topic that has been scarcely tackled in the film world. While films like Choke have dabbled in the topic, it's never been the entire focus of a film. Likely Thanks for Sharing will have a similar tone to The Kids Are All Right with an even mix of adult comedy and drama. While I found the script and story to be a little sloppy for Cholodenko's film, Blumberg delivered a pretty great sex comedy with The Girl Next Door, so I'm hoping for the best. Interested?
