NEW YORK (Hollywood Reporter) – MGM has nabbed all North American rights to the romantic comedy The Pleasure of Your Company, starring Jason Biggs and Isla Fisher.

Biggs plays an unlucky guy who dresses up like cupid to propose to his girlfriend and ends up scaring her to death. With some goading from a friend, he gives romance another try by spontaneously proposing to a waitress (Fisher), only to experience more misadventures on the road to love.

Edward Herrmann, Joe Pantoliano, Joanna Gleason, Margo Martindale and Rob Corddry round out the cast. It was written and directed by Michael Ian Black, who created the TV series Stella and starred in Wet Hot American Summer.

The feature had its world premiere this month at the Toronto International Film Festival, and is eyeing a release early next year. It was produced by financier GreeneStreet Films and Fugitive Films.
