Hyde Park International to show ‘Geezer’ footage in Cannes

GeezerGreen Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong makes his starring debut in the comedy and Hyde Park International president Eric Christenson will show footage here.

Lee Kirk wrote and directed Geezer, about a former punk rocker who struggles to adjust to life while his band remains on hiatus.

When his brother takes pity on him and helps stage a huge 40th birthday party in a New York hotel, the rocker reunites with old bandmates and an old-flame-turned-manager who gives him a chance to revive his stalled career.

Judy Greer, Selma Blair, Chris Messina and Fred Armisen also star and Armstrong wrote and performed new music for the film. Jay Cohen of The Gersh Agency represents North American rights.

Process Media’s Tim Perell and Let It Play’s Alex A Ginzburg and Tony Lee produce the film, which is in post-production.

Process’ credits include A.C.O.D., Shortbus and World’s Greatest Dad.

Production and financing company Let It Play developed Tribeca entry Supporting Characters and is in post on action film Hardcore. Upcoming productions include Holding Patterns and Crossface.

Hyde Park International’s sales slate includes 99 Homes and Christ The Lord.
