Ass Backwards closer to release?

ass backwards AKA sister spirit still

What we think is a still from the movie. (We grabbed it from the Kickstarter page.)

Ass Backwards -- AKA Sister Spirit, AKA that movie that shot in Center Square and other parts of the Capital Region during summer 2010 -- was sold this week to a distributor, and IMBD has it listed for a 2012 release (with no specific date). [Media Mikes] [Variety]

Production on the film -- a comedy starring June Diane Raphael, Casey Wilson, Alicia Silverstone, Jon Cryer, Vincent D'Onofrio and a few other names you might recognize -- had stopped last year after financing for the project fell through, leaving many of the project's bills unpaid. Raphael and Wilson, who wrote the film, raised more than $50k on Kickstarter this past summer to help finish the project. [TU]

The description of the film from the Kickstarter page:

The story follows loveable losers Kate and Chloe who fancy themselves as high powered stylish New York City gals- even though they share a water bed, sell their eggs for cash and think a table at Starbucks is a corner office. They take a road trip back to their hometown to claim the beauty pageant crown that eluded them as children.

One of the movie's producers is Molly Conners, an Albany native who also worked on Frozen River.

[via Justin, who says the production still owes him money]

I actually forgot all about this movie. Wasn't Kristen Wiig in it too?

Although I think the city is best served by having the state decommission and demolish this section of highway, if it is to be, then a couple things to consider. First, a big challenge is integrating the trail with Broadway along the exit ramp that feeds B'way from 787.The second is covering the cost of maintenance, not only of the linear park, but of the framework holding it aloft. ...
