According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film marks the directorial debut of Lina Roessler.
To save a boutique publishing house, an ambitious young editor goes on a wild book tour with an aloof, sharp-witted yesteryear author (Caine) who wants to live out his days in peace: reads the plot of the movie.
The film is based on Anthony Grieco's original screenplay, which won a 2015 Nicholl Fellowship in Screenwriting award.
"'Best Sellers' may become one of Michael Caine's greatest and funniest triumphs. With 'bullsh**e' as his rallying cry, Caine weaves a character that is hilarious in its rage, yet so touching in its vulnerability. 'Best Sellers' is just a wonderful script," Foresight's Mark Damon.
An official Canada-UK co-production, the film goes on floors in Canada mid-July.
