Dada Films nabs Toni Collette's “Mental” comedy

PanARMENIAN.Net - Independent film distributor Dada Films has acquired Mental. The Australian comedy reunites director P.J. Hogan with actress Toni Collette for the first time since their collaboration in Muriel’s Wedding back in 1994, Deadline said.

Dada’s owners MJ Peckos and Steven Raphael say they plan to release Mental both theatrically and on VOD on March 29.

In Mental, Collette plays Shaz, a single woman hired by the father of five young girls to take care of them after their mother has a nervous breakdown. Anthony LaPaglia plays the father. Liev Schreiber also stars in the film as a shark hunter. Dada picked up Mental after it debuted at the Palm Springs International Film Festival earlier this month. Jerry Zucker, Janet Zucker, Todd Fellman and Jocelyn Moorhouse produced Mental.
