Lynn Shelton News: ‘Touchy Feely’ Gets Release Date, Keira Knightley Added to ‘Laggies’
A couple pieces of Lynn Shelton news broke today. The indie director has gained critical acclaim recently with her hits Humpday and Your Sister’s Sister.
First, her newest completed film, titled Touchy Feely, will release in theaters and on Video On Demand services September 6. Magnolia previously bought the rights to the film after it received a Jury Grand Prize nomination at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. For those unfamiliar, Touchy Feely is about two siblings (kind of like Your Sister’s Sister) with intertwined stories about touching people (it’s not as dirty as it sounds). It also stars Ellen Page.
Second, after Anne Hathaway dropped out due to conflicts with Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, Keira Knightley has reportedly replaced her. The film, titled Laggies, also stars Chloë Grace Moretz and will presumably be available next year.
