Relativity Media’s 21 and Over is thefirst project made and co-financed in partnership with Sky Land, the production and distribution entity run by Relativity Media, SAIF Partners and IDG China Media. This venture recently announced a strategic alliance with Huaxia Film Distribution Company, one of the official distribution agencies of the government.
The hilarious comedy, 21 and Over, stars an up-and-coming cast including Miles Teller (Footloose), Justin Chon (The Twilight Saga), Skylar Astin (Taking Woodstock) and Sarah Wright (The House Bunny). The script was written and directed by successful comedy writers Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, whose writing credits include The Hangover. The film is about two childhood friends who drag their straight-arrow buddy out to celebrate his twenty-first birthday the night before an all-important medical school interview. But when one beer leads to another, the evening spirals into a wild epic misadventure of debauchery and mayhem that none of them will ever forget.
Joining Mandeville Films’ David Hoberman (The Fighter) and Todd Lieberman (The Fighter), are producers on the film, Andy Yan ofSAIF and Hugo Shong of IDG. The Relativity and Sky Land production is being made in association with Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Produced (Limitless). In addition to previous footage shot in Seattle, Washington, filming locations include Linyi, a city in the south of Shandong province. Principal photography on scenes in China began shooting in Linyi on October 26, 2011.
