Myriad Pictures will commence sales at the EFM in Berlin next week on Auggie , an elevated sci-fi in the vein of Her starring A Serious Man’s Richard Kind… “We were so impressed with Matt’s direction and how he and Marc brought this unique vision to the big screen,” said Myriad chief Kirk D’Amico. “Richard Kind’s performance as the hopeless Felix is heart-wrenching and the pathos that the whole cast and crew were able to realize is simply amazing.

But, if you can’t wait for the webpage to load, we’ve quoted the article for you below:
Richard Kind will star in the indie film, Auggie, from first-time feature director Matt Kane, who co-wrote the script with Marc Underhill. Kind will play Felix, a family man who, after being forced into an early retirement, falls in love with an Augmented Reality companion to the detriment of his relationship with his wife and daughter. The Spin City and Mad About You alum is joined in the film by Larisa Oleynik (10 Things I Hate About You), Susan Blackwell (The Post) and newcomer Christen Harper. Kane and Underhill are producing the project alongside Robert Sharman and John Henry Hinkel. Filming is scheduled to begin this month. Kind starred on the Amazon original series, Red Oaks, and appeared in the George Clooney-directed crime drama, Suburbicon. He’s repped by Innovative and Forster Entertainment.
Now that we are back in Los Angeles, we have begun the process of assembling all the scenes in our film! It’s a really exciting time for the project – as we put all the pieces together, it begins to feel like a real thing!
In terms of timeline for our next steps, there’s still a lot of post-production work to accomplish. Once we have a version of the film we like, we’ll reach out to composers, colorists and sound mixers to take our film to the next level. This whole process can take many months, but we hope to start applying to film festivals at the end of the summer.
Here’s a sneak peek at what our film currently looks like in the editing timeline:
Many, many little pieces come together to make something greater than the sum of their parts – this applies to both the timeline and for the support you all have provided to make this film a reality! Thank you all for coming together and supporting this story – the whole AUGGIE team feels like we have acheived something greater than the sum of the parts 🙂
