If you got a chance to see Henry Poole is Here, then you know how talented director Mark Pellington is and you know how dangerous he is with a low budget. He’ll get a chance to put those talents on display now that Jeremy Piven and Thomas Jane have both signed on to co-star in his latest film, I Melt With You.
According to the director, the film is “about four guys and deals with mortality, aging and friendship. It is very dark and very low budget.”
Clearly, it sounds like he’s rebooting Grownups.
Both actors will be spending time between successful television shows where they use their mouth and member (respectively) to take care of business in order to shoot what looks disappointingly not like a Modern English biopic.
Judging by past work and the first cast announcement, I’ll stop the world and go see this one. [Deadline Ft. Lauderdale]
