PJ Hogan’s Mental gets US theatrical release

PJ Hogan’s Mental has been picked up for distribution in the US.

The film will get a theatrical and Video-On-Demand release, with a date set for 29 March.

Dada Films has acquired the film that sees Hogan re-unite with Australian actress Toni Collette.

The deal was negotiated by MJ Peckos and Steven Raphael of Dada Films and film producers Jerry and Janet Zucker and Todd Fellman.

Mental was the fifth highest grossing Australian film at the local box office, taking $4m.

PJ Hogan was nominated for Best Original Screenplay for the film at the AACTAs, held last night, however Keiran Darcy Smith won for Wish You Were Here.

  2. This film rivals “Hey Hey It’s Esther Blueberger” (also with Toni Collette) for worst Australian film I have ever seen.

  4. If it was not for the distracting talents of Toni Collette and young Lily Sullivan, this movie was unbearable, horrible actually, Americans won’t go see this embarressment.
