A full cast listing for the indie ensemble comedy Growing Up (and Other Lies) has been announced. Adam Brody, Amber Tamblyn, Wyatt Cenac (The Daily Show), Josh Lawson (The Campaign), Danny Jacobs (Batman: The Dark Knight Returns), and Lauren Miller (For a Good Time, Call…) round out the cast of the film. The story centers on a 30-year-old (Lawson) “who on his last day in New York City before he moves back home to the Midwest recruits his three oldest friends to help him retrace their greatest adventure: walking the entire, 260-block length of the island of Manhattan in one day.”
Variety reports that Jacobs and Darren Grodsky (Humboldt County) are directing the pic from their own script. Production is currently underway in New York City on what sounds like a fairly promising premise with a strong ensemble cast.
