The film stars Zoe Kazan and Michael Stahl-David. Whedon wrote and produced it.

The release will be the second film release for Whedon's "micro studio" Bellwether Productions, following last year's adaptation of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing.

Whedon has experimented previously with digital releases. His 2008 miniseries Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog was among the first high-profile Web series.

Whedon currently is working on the Avengers sequel Age of Ultron, to be released next year.
