Summer Camp follows Nora (Keaton), Ginny (Bates) and Mary (Woodard), who have remained friends after becoming inseparable at their childhood summer camp. As they risk drifting apart, the three agree to go back to the woods for the camp’s upcoming reunion.

Roadside Attractions co-president Howard Cohen negotiated the deal with UTA Independent Film Group and CAA Media Finance on behalf of the filmmakers. The film hails from Saks Picture Company with financing from Project Infinity. Keaton, Alex Saks, Dori A. Rath, Stephanie Heaton-Harris and Tyler W. Konney serve as producers for Summer Camp.

“Audiences will be overjoyed to share laughs around the campfire this spring with Diane, Kathy and Alfre in Castille Landon’s hilarious reunion pic,” said Roadside Attractions co-presidents Cohen and Eric d’Arbeloff. “It’s clear this amazing group of women adored making this film, and their joy will spread to audiences when they see it.”

Added Landon, “We had a blast making Summer Camp, bringing a cast of legends to an actual summer camp just outside Asheville, NC, and the bonds they forged really show on screen. The film is a fun and heartfelt ode to friendship, with amazing performances all around, and the chemistry between Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy is rom-com gold.”
