EXCLUSIVE: Ahead of TIFF, Concourse Media has sold North American and UK rights on the adventure comedy Good Egg, starring Jane The Virgin actor Yara Martinez, to Vertical. 

Written and directed by Nicole Gomez Fisher (Sleeping with the Fishes), the pic follows a warmhearted schoolteacher, played by Martinez, who inadvertently gets plunged into a dangerous scheme by her suspicious IVF egg donor, played by Andrea Londo (Narcos). As the thrilling escapade unfolds, Yara and her husband, played by Joel Johnstone (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), must outsmart their criminal pursuers amidst escalating chaos.

The film was produced by Fisher alongside Dorottya Mathe and Martinez. Martinez and Londo star alongside Priscilla Lopez (Maid in Manhattan), Joseph Melendez (Ozark), and Sharinna Allan (Billions), alongside Johnstone, Nick Creegan (Law and Order: Organized Crime), Haas Manning (Blue Bloods) and Nicholas Cirillo (Outer Banks). The film is set for a November release.

“Releasing a movie with a Latinx cast that explores the journey of invitro fertilization is not just a celebration of life, but a testament to the power of diverse storytelling. We look forward to bringing Good Egg to audiences this Fall,” said Vertical SVP of Acquisitions Tony Piantedosi. 

Concourse Media CEO Matthew Shreder — who negotiated the deal on behalf of the filmmakers — added: “As the strikes press on, we’re glad to be able to support independent films during this time. Good Egg is an entertaining and heartfelt film, and we’re thrilled to have Vertical on board.”

Concourse Media will continue international sales in Toronto this week.
