Samuel Goldwyn Films has announces that it has acquired the North American rights to the romantic comedy It Had to Be You, starring How I Met Your Mother star Cristin Milioti and Dan Soder (Trainwreck, TV’s Billions). It Had to Be You was directed by first-time director Sasha Gordon and was featured in numerous film festivals, including this year’s First Time Fest.
Milioti stars as a New York City-based jingle writer who essentially tells her long-term boyfriend “let me get back to you on that” when he proposes to her because she doesn’t feel like her life is together enough for marriage just yet. Of course, she learns over the film that nobody really is prepared for these major life events — but the question is, will she figure that out before her boyfriend moves on to someone more likely to say “yes” to him?
Not only did Movie Buzzers review the film during this year’s First Time Fest, but a quote from our review also appears on the film’s new poster. Check it out below:
It Had to Be You will be released on October 21. For more information on the film, check out the movie’s official website.
