Vertical Pies David Duchovny's 'Bucky F*cking Tent'

Vertical has acquired the American rights to „Bucky F*cking Dent,” a father-son story set against the backdrop of the 1978 Red Sox vs. Yankees pennant race.

The film is written and directed by David Duchovny. Based on Duchovny's 2016 best-selling novel of the same name. The „Bucky F*cking Tent” cast includes Logan Marshall-Green („Spider-Man: Homecoming”), Stephanie Beatrice („Brooklyn Nine-Nine”), Jason Pege („Chicago PD”), and Evan Handler („Californication”). ”) with Daphne Rubin-Vega (“In the Heights”) and Pamela Adlon (“King of Staten Island”). The film is produced by Yale Productions' Jordan Yale Levin and Jordan Beckerman and Duchovny.

„Bucky F*cking Tent” had its world premiere at the 2023 Tribeca Film Festival. The release date is planned for the end of this year.

The film follows Ted (Marshall-Green), a failed writer-turned-Yankees Stadium peanut vendor who returns home after learning of the ill health of his Red Sox-obsessed father Marty (David Duchovny). As Marty tries to atone for his past, his situation worsens whenever his beloved Sox lose a game. To keep his dad's spirits up, Ted takes matters into his own hands and, with the help of his dad's neighborhood friends, leads the local team to victory. In the process, Ted forms a bond with Mariana (Beatrice), Marty's charming „death expert,” rekindling his writing ambitions.

„I wrote 'Bucky F*cking Tent' as a screenplay ten years ago, but it didn't get made, so I wrote it as a novel,” said Duchovny. „Then, I rewrote it from the novel into a screenplay. I originally wrote the son for myself, but as I got older in the years I was trying to create it, I happily adjusted to play the father. So beautiful.”

I am delighted to work with the Vertical team who will efficiently bring this film to a wider audience.
