Producer Gavin Polone's Pariah shingle has sealed a deal with Lantern Lane Entertainment to handle theatrical release of his pic "Seeing Other People."

Romantic comedy stars Jay Mohr, Julianne Nicholson, Lauren Graham, Bryan Cranston, Josh Charles, Andy Richter, Matt Davis, Jonathan Davis and Liz Phair. It centers around a couple who, two months shy of the wedding, decide to allow each other one last fling. Wally Wolodarsky directed from a script he co-wrote with Maya Forbes.

Pic will initially open in New York, L.A. and two additional markets on May 7.

Lantern, under the guidance of founder David Garber, is one of the leading producers reps and sales orgs. It made its first foray into domestic theatrical distribution with Nick Broomfield's docu "Aileen: Life and Death of a Serial Killer."

Lantern brokered the deal between Newmarket, DEJ and Media 8 Entertainment for all U.S. rights to "Monster," for which Charlize Theron won the Oscar for her portrayal of Aileen Wuornos. Company also served as the producers rep for Gold Circle Films, overseeing the settlements and collections on its deal with IFC Films on "My Big Fat Greek Wedding."
