Secret Identity Productions in association with Steakhaus Productions present 6 MONTH RULE, the new film from writer/director Blayne Weaver. The film revolves around a bachelor who follows a set of rules in order to avoid emotional attachment, the most important being: there is no woman so perfect that you can't get over her in six months. Knowing that he will get over her allows him to dismiss relationships easily and without regret... Until he meets a girl who changes everything.

Blayne Weaver stars in the film as the perpetually single Tyler Watts. Martin Starr plays Tyler's best friend Alan who is recovering after a break-up from his longtime fiancé played by Jaime Pressly. Natalie Morales plays Sophie, the girl that makes Tyler question all the rules he lives by. Vanessa Branch plays Wendy, Tyler's recurring casual relationship and Patrick J. Adams plays Julian, the hipster rock star that Tyler's character must defeat in order to win the girl. Weaver directed Adams in the 2009 film "Weather Girl."

Rounding out the cast are John Michael Higgins, Dave Foley, Brandon Barrera and Kristina Klebe.

6 MONTH RULE is produced by Steak House and Brandon Barrera who last collaborated on Weaver's 2009 romantic comedy, WEATHER GIRL.

Director's Statement

6 MONTH RULE was a script I initially wrote about five years ago. It was the one project I would come back to time and again. Sometimes I would just tweak the dialogue; sometimes I would completely re-write a dozen pages. It has always been a story I wanted to tell.

Over those years as I continued to write, act and direct my first two features, several production companies optioned the script. A string of name talent has been attached at one point or another and the budget has swollen and shrunken accordingly. During all this time, I never stopped wanting to make this film my way.

After the modest success of my last feature Weather Girl, my company Secret Identity Productions had some momentum. My business partner Brandon Barrera and I felt this was the time to make 6 MONTH RULE the way we had always talked about making it. We regained the rights to the script, set out to put together the financing and assemble a topnotch crew. We struggled over casting, trying to find the perfect actor for each role... At last we found them in our amazing ensemble. Believing strongly in the project, everyone took a pay-cut, flew to Louisiana and worked long, six-day weeks.

There were many obstacles in bringing 6 MONTH RULE to the screen but in the end I am unbelievably proud of everyone involved: from the team who crafted and protected the project, to the cast who brought the characters to life and this story of a man who isn't all that he should be but learns to try to be better.
