'Old Dads’, a feature-length film following three friends as they navigate a culturally changing world, is set for international release on October 20.
Hollywood blockbuster film studio, Miramax, which is co-owned by beIN Media Group and Paramount, has struck a deal with Netflix to sell its original comedy Old Dads. The movie, marking comedian Bill Burr’s directorial debut, is scheduled for worldwide release on October 20.
Old Dads, co-written, produced, and starring Bill Burr, features a cast including Bobby Cannavale (known for Boardwalk Empire), Bokeem Woodbine (from Fargo), and Rachael Harris (star of Diary of a Wimpy Kid). The story revolves around three best friends who sell their company to millennials, only to find themselves out of sync and struggling to adapt to the changing times. The resulting misadventures in navigating a shifting cultural landscape lead to a series of uproarious situations.
