FilmRise Acquires Zosia Mamet’s “The Boy Downstairs”


June 26, 2017 — FilmRise has acquired the North American distribution rights to Zosia Mamet’s The Boy Downstairs.

The film concerns Mamet, as Diana, who returns to Brooklyn after 4 years and finds the perfect apartment only to discover that Ben (Matthew Shear) the man she had broken up with, lives downstairs.

He is currently involved with a realtor, who is aware of the sparks that still exist between Ben and Diana and does her best to make sure that the two are rarely in the same place together.

The charming story by Sophie Brooks and relatable couple of Mamet and Shear have turned this into an acclaimed rom-com.

The Boy Downstairs is planned for an early 2018 theatrical release.
