The co-star of HBO’s Girls wrote or co-wrote, directed and starred in both the drama Rubberneck and comedy Red Flag, which have been acquired by Tribeca Film. The plan is to release both relationship-themed pics in February 2013 theatrically and on-demand. Rubberneck, co-written by Alex Karpovsky and Garth Donovan, is a story of workplace romance gone wrong. Months after a weekend fling, Boston research scientist Paul (Karpovsky) continues to lust after his beautiful co-worker Danielle (Jamie Ray Newman), nurturing his fantasies with the occasional polite exchange at work. But once she starts dating another scientist at their lab, his infatuation quickly turns into obsession. Red Flag is a road-trip comedy starring Karpovsky as Alex Karpovsky, a newly single indie filmmaker who hits the road with an old friend (Onur Tukel) to promote one of his films. As the pair travels from one half-empty theater to the next, they are pursued by an adoring fan (Jennifer Prediger) who drives them into an exceptionally uncomfortable love triangle. The deal for Rubberneck was negotiated for Tribeca Film by Nick Savva, Director of Acquisitions, and Alison Diviney, Manager of Acquisitions; and for the filmmakers by Nate Bolotin at XYZ Films. Red Flag was negotiated by Diviney on behalf of Tribeca Film and by Traction Media on behalf of the filmmakers.
