Kristen Bell, Lily Collins, Logan Lerman, Nat Wolff, Liana Liberato have joined Greg Kinnear and Jennifer Connelly in Josh Boone‘s comedy-drama Writers. Deadline reports that “the film follows the members of the Borgens family and their love interests over the course of one tumultuous year.” Kinnear plays Bill Borgens, a famous novelist obsessed with ex-wife (Connelly) even though he’s sleeping with his friend Tricia (Bell), who’s trying to help him get over his ex. Collins plays Bill’s daughter Samatha, who is being pursued by a fellow writing student (Lerman), and Samantha’s teenage brother (Wolff) is experiencing his first love with Kate (Liberato). This is how they all became The Borgens Bunch.
Shooting will begin next week in North Carolina. Boone wrote the script and will make his feature directing debut on the film.
