Owen Wilson’s Paint draws from Bob Ross’s iconic palette

    Paint the movie

    Paint centers on Carl Nargle (obviously inspired by the iconic Bob Ross – played by Owen Wilson), who has hosted Vermont’s number-one painting show for nearly three decades. While Carl’s signature whisper has long kept viewers from Pittsfield to St. Albans breathlessly hanging on his every stroke, the station eventually hires a younger, better painter who steals everything (and everyone) Carl loves. 

    Paint is both written and directed by American writer/filmmaker Brit McAdams, director of the doc film Triviatown previously, plus tons of other TV work including directing “Tosh. O“, “Katt Williams: American Hustle”, and the Comedy Central series “Honesty“. It is produced by Peter Brant and Sam Maydew. As far as we know, this hasn’t premiered at any film festivals or elsewhere.

    IFC Films will release Brit McAdams’ Paint in select US theaters exclusively starting April 7th, 2023 coming soon this spring.
