CLEVELAND - A coming-of-age comedy that was filmed in Cleveland has been snatched up by CBS Films.
The company announced their domestic rights acquisition of "Toy's House" on Thursday, just a few weeks after the film debuted to rave reviews at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.
Tyler Davidson of Chagrin Falls produced the film, which has repeatedly been compared to movies like "Stand By Me" and "The Goonies."
The story follows three unhappy teenage boys as they head into the wilderness with a plan to build a house and live off the land.
The film was shot in Northeast Ohio in 2011.
"Toy's House" was directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts. It starsNick Robinson ("Melissa & Joey"), Gabriel Basso ("Super 8"),Moises Arias ("Hannah Montana"),Nick Offerman ("Parks & Recreation),Megan Mullally ("Will & Grace"),Alison Brie ("Community"),Mary Lynn Rajskub ("24"), Erin Moriarty, Marc Evan Jackson, Thomas Middleditch and Tony Hale.
"CBS Films is so passionate about this movie and share my thoughts that comedy can be poignant and beautiful," Vogt-Roberts says. "The response at Sundance has been overwhelming and I can't wait for CBS Films to share 'Toy's House' with audiences everywhere."
The company's plans for the film are not yet known.
