Yara Martinez will be eggin’ on audiences across the globe…
Concourse Media has acquired the worldwide sales rights to the 42-year-old Puerto Rican actress’ comedy Good Egg ahead of its premiere at the Bentonville Film Festival this week.
The film 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. As the adventure ensues, she and her husband, played by Joel Johnstone, must evade criminal captors.
The film was written and directed by Nicole Gomez Fisher and produced by Fisher alongside Dorottya Mathe and Martinez.
The film also stars Priscilla Lopez, Joseph Melendez, and Sharinna Allan, alongside Johnstone, Nick Creegan, Haas Manning and Nicholas Cirillo.
Concourse Media will be presenting the film to select domestic distributors during this week’s Bentonville festival and will launch international sales at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.
“Good Egg is an entertaining and heartfelt film that puts an amusing spin on the complexities of fertility treatment, which millions of families in the US and abroad go through,” said Concourse Media CEO Matthew Shreder. “There’s a large audience out there who will relate to and enjoy this film which we are excited to share with distributors.”
Martinez’s previous credits include Jane the Virgin, Bull and The Tick.
