NU Image and Millennium Films have announced information regarding the cast for their new comedy film Straight A’s.
Filming for the new movie has just started in Louisiana and word is that Ryan Phillippe, Anna Paquin, Luke Wilson and Riley Thomas Stewart will all be gracing the comedy with their talents.
Phillippe will be heading up the cast playing a man who has been in and out of rehab several times over the last decade, he is ultimately convinced by the ghost of his mother to return to the family that he has abandoned. After setting off to Louisiana with a bag of pills and marijuana in tow, he returns to the family home where he confronts his older brother (Wilson) and faces up to his sister in law (Paquin) who is still in love with him even after they broke up.
Throw in his son (Stewart) who he hasn’t seen for quite some time and it looks as though we have a strong comedy, with the potential to pack some emotional punches.
James Cox will be directing, with the screenplay written by David Cole.
