Melissa Rauch Film 'The Bronze' Bought by Sony

Get ready to watch 'The Big Bang Theory' star Melissa Rauch doing gymnastics on the big screen under the banner of Sony. Melissa Rauch's comedy film 'The Bronze' has been picked up by Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions. 

Melissa Rauch has been playing the role of Bernadette on CBS' hit sitcom 'The Big Bang Theory' since 2009. She also worked in True Blood. But now the TV star is working in a comedy film.

Rauch is not only starring in the comedy, but she also has co-written the script with her husband, Winston Rauch. Rauch plays the character of Hope Greggory, a foul-mouthed former gymnastics bronze medalist.

Rauch's character gets to create hilarious situations while fighting for local celebrity status against a news young athlete who is becoming famous. Rauch's funny character is very appealing and Sony Pictures decided to acquire the rights to Melissa Rauch's comedy.

"We fell instantly for the vulgar yet lovable Hope Greggory,” said SPWA’s senior acquisitions VP Joe Matukewicz.

Other stars of the cast include Gary Cole, Thomas Middleditch (Silicon Valley), Sebastian Stan (Captain America: The Winter Soldier), Cecily Strong (Saturday Night Live) and Haley Lu Richardson.

Award-winning commercial director, Bryan Buckley, who is famous for making many Super Bowl ads, is the director of this movie. He is currently directing the comedy in Ohio.

The producer of this indie is Stephanie Langhoff, who also produced the Kristen Wiig-Bill Hader comedy The Skeleton Twins.

Two famous brothers, Jay and Mark Duplass, who have already produced comedies such as Jeff, Who Lives at Home and Cyrus, are the executive producers of this comedy along with Melissa Rauch, Winston Rauch and Bryan Buckley.

Buckley has not worked as a commercial director, but he is also the writer and director of the Oscar-nominated (for best live action short) short film Asad. He is also directing Reese Witherspoon's comedy 'Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus,' which is a Lionsgate film.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
