The official trailer for Mindy Kaling’s feature film, Late Night, has just been released.
Kaling serves as producer and writer of the film and stars alongside Emma Thompson who plays a talk show host on the verge of losing her show. Thompson hires a female writer, played by Kaling, to help revamp her program. Late Night also stars Hugh Dancy, John Lithgow, Ike Barinholtz and Dennis O’Hare and is directed by Nisha Ganatra.
After premiering at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, Amazon Studios bought the US distribution rights for the film for $13 million. According to Deadline, the deal was made after an all-night bidding battle and became the largest deal for a US only distribution at Sundance.
Late Night is scheduled to hit theaters on June 7th.
