First Look: Galifianakis & Others in It's Kind of a Funny Story
A few of you savvy cinephiles may be wondering what's been happening with Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck, the husband-wife filmmakers who received Indie Spirit Award noms for Half Nelson. Well, they did direct a little baseball indie called Sugar (that I suggest seeing), but they also have another drama coming out this fall. It's Kind of a Funny Story, based on Ned Vizzini's novel, stars Keir Gilchrist as Craig, a clinically depressed teenager who checks himself into an adult psychiatric ward, meeting all kinds of crazy folks like Zach Galifianakis and Aasif Mandvi. We don't have a trailer yet, but MTV debuted a new photo gallery.
As you can see, It's Kind of a Funny Story also stars Emma Roberts, Lauren Graham, Adrian Martinez, Zoë Kravitz, Viola Davis, Jeremy Davies and Jim Gaffigan. You can see more photos on MTV, although the rest of them look like your standard promo shot. This looks like a much more dramatic film than I was expecting, but I still don't know if it'll be partly comedic or not. I also hope this means we'll finally get to see a trailer for this soon, as Focus Features should still be releasing It's Kind of a Funny Story into limited theaters on September 24th this fall. I think it could be really good! Stay tuned for updates. Look interesting so far?

#1 i like the time line where he is chasing Tornadoes with Philip Seymour Hoffman, Bill Paxton & Helen Hunt! ooo! Ooo!! or the one where he is in colonial times and he he hurts his leg falling down a mountain and scream "HE WAS LICKING ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

I agree with Xerxex...What a simple, yet fun and original concept for a film. Whenever I see ideas like this I immediately think to myself "why didn't I think of that." ...sadly though it seems like when film makers nowadays see an original idea they immediately think "how can I remake that" instead.

You mean second and better look because these are better pics than the original one that came out a week or two ago.

I absolutely adore this book. I've read it 5+ times and my boyfriend and I are reading it together right now. Its hilariously dark, and easy to relate too. I'm so excited for this, and the cast is..perfect. And that's an understatement. Can't wait to see this.
