‘Nerdland’ follows the story of aspiring actor John (Paul Rudd) and would-be screenwriter Elliot (Patton Oswalt), two Hollywood-dwelling men approaching their 30th birthdays without a hint of the fame and acclaim they have always dreamed of. The ambitious duo hatch a crazy plan to become stars, launch their careers, and get the the girls — all in one day.
Directed by Chris Prynoski (Motorcity, Metalocalypse) and written by Andrew Kevin Walker (Sleepy Hollow, The Wolfman), the film also features the voices of Hannibal Burress, Larraine Newman, Mike Judge, Kate Micucci & Riki Lindhome (a.k.a. Garfunkel & Oates), Jackson Publick (The Venture Bros.), Molly Shannon, Charlene Yi and Paul Scheer.
Screening times and tickets can be found on the Tribeca website
